EL CERRITO -- An El Sobrante man was arrested last week after a young girl caught him reading porn, smoking a cocaine-laced marijuana cigarette and sipping on a stolen soft drink in the women's restroom of a Safeway.

The 32-year-old man, whose name was not released, was reported by the girl who entered the bathroom Saturday afternoon, smelled the drug and saw a pornographic magazine on the floor and then alerted her mother, who called police.

Officers who were in the store at 11450 San Pablo Ave. investigating a separate shoplifting incident detained the man, who police said was under the influence of a controlled substance. He later admitted to smoking the cigarette and that it was laced with cocaine, police said. He also admitted to stealing a bottle of soda, police said.

He was arrested on suspicion of petty theft, being under possession of a controlled substance and drug possession, police said.

The man was taken to the County Jail in Martinez.
