ASPEN, Colo. - Caught chopping lines of white powder on an Aspen bench, and with more suspected coc aine around his nostrils, a suspect boldly admitted to the deed.
"Of course I have coc aine up my nose, it's Aspen," Eliphalet Ford said in court documents quoted by the Aspen Times.
According to the newspaper's report, Ford is a 34-year-old from Snowmass Village who was arrested around 2:10 a.m. during a routine police patrol. Another woman, who was sitting on the same bench, was not arrested in the case.
The officers heard the chopping sound during a routine downtown patrol at about 2:10 a.m., according to an arrest warrant. When they contacted Eliphalet Ford, officers saw two credit cards on the bench with a white, powdery substance on them and a line of white powder near Ford’s leg, the warrant states. Ford brushed the line of powder on to the ground when officers asked about it.
One of the officers then shined a flashlight up Ford’s nose, saw a white substance in his nostrils and said he believed it was coc aine, the warrant states.
“Of course I have coc aine up my nose,” the officer said Ford told him. “It’s Aspen.”
