CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Two men are in custody after trying to run from Corpus Christi Police.

A canine officer spotted the pair acting strangely near Gollihar and Weber Sunday evening around six.

The men then tried to make their getaway and drove to a nearby Popeye's parking lot where they jumped out of the car and started to run.

"One of the subjects dumped a cigarette pack underneath a parked vehicle in which we located four bags of cocaine," said Michael Smotherman of the Corpus Christi Police Department

The driver was arrested for not carrying car insurance and his car was impounded, but he was released.

The passenger remains in jail on drug charges.
