A 39-year-old man was arrested by Englewood police officers at 7 p.m. April 18 on the 3000 block of South Acoma Street over suspected possession of heroin.
The man possessed four small plastic bags filled with a brown substance that resembled heroin. The substance in the bags turned out to be crumbled muffins, which the suspect told officers he packaged to look like heroin.
The suspect allegedly told police that he intended to sell the bundles and use the money he received to buy real heroin. While searching the suspect, police also found several syringes and other drug paraphernalia items.
The man was arrested and taken to the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Detention Facility where he could face several charges related to his activities.
