REDWOOD CITY, California (AP) — Authorities say a 19-year-old Northern California man was arrested after he asked a police officer for a ride, agreed to be searched and was found to have cocaine in his pocket.

Ongley Raymond Ocon III was charged with felony possession of cocaine.

San Mateo County prosecutors say Ocon left a party in San Carlos early Sunday morning, walked up to a Redwood City police patrol car and asked for a ride home to Danville.

The officer asked Ocon whether he was carrying anything illegal.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe says Ocon initially responded "yes" before pausing and saying "no."

Wagstaffe tells the Contra Costa Times Ocon then agreed to be searched, and the officer discovered the cocaine.
