Ashraf Boulos Hindi was taken into custody after providing an undercover Ventura County Sheriff's deputy with drugs at a Motel 6 in Camarillo.Hindi went to the motel after having an exchange with an adult "female companion" he met online via Craigslist. The two had arranged to meet up, and Hindi allegedly "offered to bring cocaine, marijuana and alcohol to the motel."

Authorities say Hindi "was booked Saturday on suspicion of possession of narcotics and transporting drugs after he allegedly brought marijuana to the motel." During a search of his Canyon Country home, deputies found cocaine.
