NORFOLK, Neb. -- Two people were arrested after a vehicle check Friday evening in northeast Nebraska.
Shortly after 11:30 p.m., a Norfolk Police officer saw a vehicle stopped in the middle of the road in the 200 block of North 2nd Street. NPD says the officer saw a male passenger, 36-year-old, Sergio Salazar Pena, of Columbus, exit the vehicle so he stopped to check on the vehicle.
According to police, this is when the officer learned that Salazar Pena was a Door Dash delivery person, and he was there to deliver a pizza. The officer then made contact with the driver, who the officer recognized as, 22-year-old Arachalys Chaves Correa, of Norfolk.
NPD says that the officer checked her license which showed that it was currently under suspension. When Salazar Pena returned to the car, Chaves Correa explained the situation since the male spoke broken English, according to a press release issued by NPD. This is when the officer identified the male passenger as Salazar Pena.
Salazar Pena then took a child's car seat and other items from the car before it was to be towed.
Police say the officer was standing nearby and saw a glass pipe on the floorboard of the car as Salazar Pena was removing the items. The officer asked him to step back and went to retrieve the pipe, according to the release.
According to the officer, the pipe had been moved under the seat, but he still located it. The officer drug tested the pipe, and it tested positive for methamphetamine.
Police say that both Chavez Correa and Salazar Pena were questioned about the pipe, and they were both arrested for possession of a controlled substance. Chavez Correa was also arrested for driving under suspension. They were both taken to Norfolk City Jail and were later transferred to Madison County Jail.
