Eustice (WTFF) A Florida man was stopped for sleeping at a sign and was found with tubes of methamphetamine inside his pickup truck.
Officer Eustice responded to a call about a suspicious vehicle in the N. Prescott Street and E. Bates Street areas at approximately 7:00 a.m. Tuesday.
The anonymous caller stated that a pickup truck with garbage in the back was found parked at the stop sign. According to the written statement, the arrest was made.
The officer arrived and found Darren Mercer, 22, in his Dodge truck. He seemed to be asleep. Darren is a native of Florida.
A methamphetamine tube was found in his lap. A second methamphetamine tube was discovered that was “inside the torso on the floor”. There was also some marijuana in the can. Field tests confirmed all this, at least in principle.
Darren is taken into custody and sent to prison. He was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was still in prison as of Sunday on $2,000 bail.
He has no previous convictions so it looks like he just moved from Florida to his new home.
