Cocaine Truck

Police: Ice cream truck used for drug sales.

Police say the white stuff undercover officers confiscated from an ice cream truck in Cincinnati wasn't vanilla-flavored -- it was cocaine.

Officers working undercover in the Avondale neighborhood say they became suspicious when they watched a teen take something from the truck and put it in his pocket. Police arrested the teen and another man with him. Police say the man had more than a pound of powder cocaine and a pistol.

The 22-year-old man is charged with drug trafficking, drug possession, illegally having a gun and carrying a concealed weapon. Police say they've had other cases of illicit sales from ice cream trucks. They say the truck was found nearby after a search, and a police dog indicated he smelled drugs inside. The driver was arrested.
