(BEDFORD) – A Vincennes man was arrested Tuesday after Bedford Police officers were requested to the parking lot of McAlister’s Deli because of a suspicious male stumbling in the parking lot.
When officers arrived at 7:05 p.m. they found the male walking in the Big O Tires parking lot.
Police identified the male as 39-year-old Jared Dixon of Vincennes.
BPD Chief Terry Moore says Dixon’s speech was slurred and he was sweating profusely and was having a hard time standing.
“He told the officers he had used meth the day before and told the officers to tow his vehicle and [that] there was more meth inside the vehicle,” Chief Moore added.
Police inventoried the vehicle and found a crystal-like substance that tested positive for meth. They also found marijuana and various items of drug paraphernalia.
Officers arrested Dixon on charges of possession of meth, public intoxication, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia
