REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Authorities say a 19-year-old Danville man was arrested after a police officer he asked for a ride discovered cocaine in his pocket.
Ongley Raymond Ocon III has been charged with felony possession of cocaine.
San Mateo County prosecutors say Ocon left a party in San Carlos early Sunday morning, walked up to a Redwood City police patrol car and asked for a ride home to Danville.
The officer apparently asked Ocon whether he was carrying anything illegal.
Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe says Ocon initially responded "yes" before pausing and saying "no."
Wagstaffe tells the Contra Costa Times Ocon then agreed to be searched, and the officer discovered the cocaine.
