When officers arrived at 2:50 a.m. they spoke to 22-year-old Ryan Walden.

“While speaking to him, Walden showed the usual signs of intoxication,” says Chief Terry Moore. “Officers also saw stolen items in his pockets.”

While retrieving the stolen items police also found a syringe that tested positive for meth.

Walmart security requested that Walden sign a no-trespass order.

Walden’s vehicle was towed from the lot. During an inventory of the vehicle officers located meth and syringes and a green-leafy substance that tested positive for synthetic marijuana.

Walden was arrested on charges of public intoxication, possession of meth, possession of a synthetic drug and unlawful possession of a syringe.
