______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Scott Storch tried to hide a baggie of cocaine in a trash can at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Vegas before cops arrived … this according to the police report, obtained by TMZ.
In the report, the arresting officer says cops fished out the baggie after receiving a tip from hotel security … and discovered it contained 2.7 grams of blow.
Hip-hop producer Scott Storch — a recovering drug addict — was arrested in Vegas earlier this month for possession of cocaine … TMZ has learned.
According to law enforcement, Storch was arrested at a Vegas hotel around 8:30 AM on Feb. 4.
Sources tell us … the arrest went down after an employee called police to complain that Storch wouldn’t pay for his room.
When cops arrived to the scene, we’re told officers discovered Storch was in possession of cocaine. Storch was hauled to a nearby police station … where he was released on $5k bond.
Storch — who has worked with stars like Beyoncé, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Snoop, Pink and more — famously blew a $30 million fortune after getting hooked on drugs back in 2006. He eventually checked into rehab and has been working on his recovery ever since.

Snoop Dogg has blasted Kim Kardashianin an web video in which he calls her a “cold-blooded bitch”.
The rapper has released the video online under his alter-ego Nemo and in it he addresses the socialite’s estranged husband Kris Humphries – who Kim dumped in October after just 72 days of marriage.
Snoop’s words of advice to the basketball player include telling him he should never have tried to “wife the bitch” because she gets around.
In the video – posted on mrgrassys.com – the hip-hop star says: “First advice is you should have never tried to wife the bitch man. She’s not that type of a ho, she gets around … She’s cold-blooded, I’m pretty sure she’ll have a book in a month talking about all the niggers that she got and how she played them. So, my advice is you can’t make a ho a housewife. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel.”
Snoop also mentions two of Kim’s ex-lovers, NFL player Reggie Bush and singer Ray J, who is his cousin.
The ‘Wet’ rapper claims Ray J – who appeared in a home made sex tape with Kim which was eventually released on DVD – is the only guy who “bounced back from the bitch”.
