The man paid for the pizza with a wad of cash.

But as the Pizza Hut delivery woman left the Sunset Hotel at 2328 S. Broadway at about 11:15 p.m. Monday, Lt. Doug Nolte said, she noticed something tucked in with the cash: a baggie containing a suspicious crystalline substance.

The 22-year-old woman called police, who tested the substance and determined it was methamphetamine. She told police where she delivered the pizza.

When officers went to the hotel room, Nolte said, they found cocaine and meth. The 35-year-old man was booked into jail.

“We believe he did not realize he had, in fact, given her some drugs,” Nolte said of the suspect.
