A deputy about 12:50 a.m. Sunday saw a man identified as Timothy Allen Riggin, of the 600 block of Avenue E, peeking around the rear building of the Nowalk Motel.

Riggin ran from the deputy, but was apprehended near U.S. 1. Investigators turned up several pieces of faux crack cocaine in his pocket, according to the affidavit.

“When I located the counterfeit crack, the male immediately said it was bread,” the affidavit states. “I asked him what he meant and he said it is fake crack.”

Riggin, listed as unemployed, said he was trying to sell the bogus crack to pay bills, according to the report.

He faces a felony possession of counterfeit controlled substance with intent to sell within 1,000 feet of a convenience store charge and a misdemeanor count of resisting without violence.
