A man arrested in Hobbs on an outstanding warrant and police say they found drugs on him.

Hobbs police were called out to Zia Park Casino to investigate possible drug activity.

That’s where they arrested Aureliano Aranda.

The officer who transported Aranda said while they were driving, Aranda complained of not having enough room and he kept moving around.

The officer removed him from the car and said he could see a white powdery substance rubbed into the seat.
