(AP) A Buffalo man is accused of picking what may be the worst possible place to stash some drugs while police were looking on.
Two Buffalo police officers were checking out drug activity in a neighborhood late Monday night when they spotted Bernard Fincher Jr., 25, walk up to a doughnut box, pick up a white object and place it in his pocket.
Police told The Buffalo News that Fincher walked away, then went back and placed a white object back in the box. The officers moved in and checked out the carton, which was empty of doughnuts but contained some crack cocaine.
Fincher was arrested at the scene and later charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.
