A traffic stop turned to much more for a San Benito man in Harlingen this weekend.
Police first stopped Jesus Danache because they say he didn't stop in time at a red light on Ed Carey and Business 77. As the officer made the traffic stop, he smelled marijuana coming from the car and saw a baggie with marijuana inside the car. The officer arrested Danache for possession of marijuana, but also cited him with a DWI as well. On his way to jail Danache racked up more charges by allegedly offering the officer money to set him free.
He also faces a charge of bribery and bond for all four charges totaled $16,500 dollars.
