Pinal County Man Arrested for Possession of Baking Soda -- That "Baking Soda" Was Actually Cocaine
A Pinal County man learned that lesson the hard way after cops found him in possession of the (ahem) baking soda.

Cops checked it out and found the unidentified suspect had a baggy full of white powder in his possession.
When the man was arrested, he tried to tell police the white, powdery substance was baking soda -- as if people walk around with small baggies of baking soda in their possession.
He was arrested.
In total, cops arrested four people at the house -- some for marijuana possession and others for outstanding warrants.
