The Maricopa Police Department recently arrested a man after he allegedly missed his court date for driving on a suspended license.
But it’s what reportedly happened when officers booked Eduardo Luna into jail June 9 that turned a misdemeanor case into multiple felony recommendations.
A report from MPD alleges Luna attempted to conceal drugs and paraphernalia on his person while being processed into the Pinal County Adult Detention Facility in Florence.
“(Luna) verbally identified the items as a meth pipe and meth, which he claims he concealed behind his testicles,” the report states.
In addition to the class 1 misdemeanor failure to appear charge, Luna also faces three drug offenses: promoting prison contraband, a class 2 felony; dangerous drug possession, a class 4 felony; and drug paraphernalia possession, a class 6 felony.
