ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

An Odessa man was arrested after police say he tossed a glass smoking pipe over a fence in an attempt to hide it.

While patrolling the 700 block of East University boulevard, officers noticed a man and woman arguing outside.

Welch was arrested and charged for tampering with physical evidence and possession of a dangerous drug.
