VERO BEACH, Florida – A Vero Beach man looking for a ride got his wish when he flagged down deputies from the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office and was arrested on charges of a felony possession controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.
Richard Farb, a 38-year-old chef, was looking for a ride when he flagged down a deputy. Luckily for Farb, the deputy agreed to give him a ride.
As standard procedure, Farb was asked if he could be searched before getting into the officer’s vehicle, and he advised “yes,” according to the report.
Upon the search, the deputy found a crack pipe that contained a burnt chorboy on one end and a pill bottle. One of the pills was identified as a schedule 2 controlled substance.
Farb said his aunt dropped it on the floor and he picked it up and placed it in his pill bottle.
Deputies arrested Farb and gave him a ride to the Indian River County Jail in Vero Beach where he was charged. He has since made bail.
