El Paso- A routine traffic stop in west El Paso ending up being just that. 33-year-old Christian Sierra was arrested by El Paso police officers last night for possession of a controlled substance, after officers stopped two baggies of cocaine in the console of his car.
It all started when Sierra was pulled over after officers noticed his 2001 Chervolet Impala had an expired inspection sticker. Officers say when they pulled him over, they saw the two baggies of cocaine, weighing a total of two grams. Sierra was booked in the El Paso County jail. His bond has been set at $5,000.
