PHOENIX (KSAZ) - He was a Phoenix Fire Department paramedic, but police say he was trying to earn some extra cash on the side, by selling marijuana.

Police say they caught him literally holding the bag.

Officials say the paramedic was holding a trash bag containing 20 lbs of pot during a DEA sting operation.

30 year-old Cory Robert Cole, a Phoenix Fire paramedic, was arrested Friday during a sting operation and now faces narcotics charges.

A home in North Phoenix was under surveillance for being a grow operation. According to court documents, officers saw Cole pull up in a pickup truck and load several black bags into the back. They then stopped him nearby.

When officers stopped Cole, they say they smelled a strong odor of marijuana. An officer inspected one of the bags and found a large bale of marijuana inside; it's weight at nearly twenty pounds.

The evidence was turned over to the DEA.

Cole served in the U.s. Marine Corps and worked for the City of Phoenix for the past seven years. At the time of his arrest he was an employee of the Phoenix Fire Department as a paramedic, it's unclear what his status is now.

He now faces two felony counts for possession of marijuana for sale and transporting marijuana for sale.
