A Frederick police officer said he watched two men snorting cocaine near a shopping center Saturday night.
Officer John Hoxie said he was driving his normal patrol when he noticed several men "acting suspiciously" in a shady area of the retail center at 50 N. McCain Drive.
Hoxie said he got out of his patrol car and snuck up on the group to get a closer look. The officer said he watched two suspects, Yonis Barahuna-Funes and Elmar Omar Galindo inhaling a white powdered substance.
Hoxie searched the two men, found cocaine and paraphernalia, and placed both under arrest.
Barahuna-Funes also had an open arrest warrant for failing to report to court on a traffic charge. He received a $7,500 bond. Galindo was released on his own recognizance.
