Police found David *******, 38, of Ruidoso, digging in a trash receptacle, May 18, in a parking lot on the 500 block of Sudderth Drive, stating he was taking things to keep them from going to the landfill.
He was unable to provide identification and police followed him to his residence for any type of document that could verify his I.D. As police followed him into his house, they found marijuana and paraphernalia. He was finally identified and cited into Magistrate Court for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia.
Oh, goodness! Make a note ... When you're going dumpster diving, always take your identification with you!!
