LEVELLAND, TX (KCBD) -

When confronted by a Levelland police officer, a man accused of having cocaine in his car claimed it was not illegal drugs. He told police it was deodorant.

Officers did not believe Christopher Alan Campbell, 23, of Littlefield and took him to jail anyway.

An officer pulled over Campbell on Wednesday for speeding. The officer smelled what he thought was marijuana and searched the car over Campbell's objections. According to a police report, the officer found a small amount of marijuana and a white substance that the officer believed to be crack cocaine.

A field test showed positive for cocaine and Campbell was charged with possessing both marijuana and cocaine. He was also charged with driving with a suspended license.

Campbell was released Thursday on $4,500 bond.
