Man flags down cops to ask for a ride…gets arrested for carrying meth

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A man who flagged down Jourdanton Police officers to ask for a ride did get a lift…but there was a slight change to his travel plans.

The Officers were stopped by Justin Peacock of Pleasanton who said he would appreciate a ride to a nearby gas station.

It was a hot day and the officers were willing to help but before Peacock was able to climb inside the air conditioned cruiser, the cops found out he wasn’t just another hitch hiker.

Peacock was carrying some meth…. and drug paraphernalia.

He still got a ride but not to the gas station.

The officers dropped him off at the Atascosa County Jail on a felony drug charge.
