The Athens News-Courier has an interesting story of a man who chose an interesting choice of toppings for his baked potato.

When deputies asked 21-year-old Ruben Orozco what he was doing in an Athens restaurant parking lot on Monday afternoon, he told them he was waiting for a friend to eat lunch.

The explanation sounded a little fishy to Limestone County Sheriff’s Lt. Lance Royals and Deputy Justin Flanagan, who noticed Orozco had a fresh plate of chicken or shrimp with lettuce and carrots and what appeared to be a foil-wrapped baked potato in his 1999 silver Mustang.

Turned out, the “baked potato” was 5 ounces of uncut cocaine valued at more than $6,000, Royals said.
