A Chipotle executive surrendered Tuesday to face several counts of cocaine possession stemming from a case announced last week.
Mark Crumpacker — wearing an open collar white dress shirt, khakis, a blazer and sneakers — appeared before a Manhattan Supreme Court judge to face seven counts of criminal possession in the seventh degree.
He was not asked to enter a plea at the brief proceeding.
Assistant District Attorney Patrick Doherty said Crumpacker, the high-profile marketing guru at the burrito mega chain, was caught 13 times on wiretaps ordering drugs to his Union Square-area apartment.

Crumpacker, 53, bought about $3,000 worth allegedly from sellers who were charged separately, prosecutors said.
Crumpacker was one of 18 individuals, mainly white collar professionals, who were charged in an unusual sweep of drug customers.
The investigation was sparked by the death of Thomas Hughes, a 29-year-old banker who jumped to his death last year.
Investigators followed a lead they got on a drug dealer in the dead man’s phone, authorities said.
Katie Welnhofer, 30, a producer for “Mornings with Maria” on Fox Business Network, was among those charged. Also indicted was Christopher Dodson, a client associate at Merrill Lynch, and Austin Dodson, his brother, who works for Cushman & Wakefield.
Crumpacker’s attorney Gerald Lefcourt said outside the courtroom that his client surrendered to the Manhattan DA’s office on Tuesday morning.
The fast-food exec was caught on wiretap ordering something stronger than guac, prosecutors say.
He declined to respond to the charges when approached by reporters.
“We will deal with things in the courtroom,” Lefcourt said.
Crumpacker was expected to be released on $4,500 cash bail.
Meanwhile, defendants Scott McDowell and James Hulihan were also arraigned Tuesday. Bail was set for each at $1,500 cash or $3,500 bond.
