Dude, hide this kilo!

Chicago cops arrested the front-seat passenger of a van who was holding a kilo of cocaine in his lap, Chicago Breaking News reports.

They also nabbed the driver of the van after he jumped out and tried to run away.

The van was parked in an alley on Chicago's Southwest side last night. Police were looking for a man with a gun when they stumbled on the van sitting in the 5800 block of South Albany Avenue.

When they searched a garage nearby they found even more: 9 pounds of marijuana and $7,000 cash.
