A Texas man was arrested on Thursday after he walked into a police station asking for help because he reportedly owed money to a drug supplier.

Deputies in Harrison County, Texas, arrested Pedro Serrano, 33, for possession of narcotics and resisting arrest after he arrived at the sheriff’s office and requested security because he reportedly had not paid a narcotics supplier.

Serrano spoke with detectives on June 16 and said his life was in danger.

Task Force investigators escorted Serrano to the sheriff’s office interview room, where they began interviewing him. When investigators started the interview, Serrano allegedly said he had a large amount of narcotics in his vehicle, which he had parked outside the sheriff’s office.

Officials said that investigators tried to take Serrano into custody for the drugs after the interview, but he began resisting them inside the interview room. Even after several investigators responded to the incident, Serrano allegedly continued to fight.

The man was ultimately incarcerated, and investigators secured and executed a search warrant for his vehicle, which allegedly contained nearly two pounds (825 grams) of methamphetamine.

Harrison County Sheriff Brandon “BJ” Fletcher said in a department Facebook post, “Law enforcement is a unique career, and every day is different, as this episode clearly shows,” the sheriff said. “I am thankful these narcotics landed in our lap instead of the streets or lives of our community.“
