HOBBS, N.M. - A Hobbs man got caught with drugs after his friend was pulled over.

40-year-old Aldaberto Payen was the passenger in the car officers stopped.

Police arrested the driver after discovering he had warrants out for his arrest.

Payen was let go.

But once he got out of the car, police say they saw a baggie of white powder in his seat.

It turns out the power was methamphetamine.

If that wasn't bad enough, officers say Payen also had warrants out for his arrest.
