ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE/WCMH) – An undercover drug bust lead to the arrest of two men accused of doing business out of an adult store’s porta-potty.

It happened Tuesday in the parking lot of the Pussycat Video on Central Avenue in Albuquerque, KQRE reported.

One of the officers walked up to Plata and asked him where he could buy some drugs, KOAT reported. Plata motioned toward a blue portable potty in the parking lot of Pussycat Video.

Inside the temporary toilet was Plata’s brother Gonzales, according to court records.
