Fake ice cream van used for drug deals

MISSION, TX Adan Toca is charged with possession of marijuana. He was in the Hidalgo County Detention Center on Thursday in lieu of $50,000 bail. Jailer Edna Ochoa says there was no listing for an attorney for Toca.

KRGV-TV reports Mission police on Tuesday arrested Toca at a post office after he allegedly appeared intoxicated and was carrying two boxes. Police confiscated 10 pounds of marijuana from the packages.

Sgt. Jody Tittle says Toca may have been using the fake ice cream-sale vehicle to avoid getting stopped. The van did not have a freezer.

Ochoa, during arraignment, said he's from Zacatecas, Mexico.
