(BEDFORD) – Two men were arrested early Saturday morning after Bedford Police officers were requested to the Big Red Liquors parking lot.
The caller told police there was a red Honda parked in the lot and that it had been there for hours.
“When officers arrived they found two males in the vehicle,” says Chief Terry Moore.
Officers identified the driver as 38-year-old Matthew Cook, of Bloomington. The passenger was identified as 44-year-old Jason Kincaid, who told police that he was homeless.
“Cook stepped out of the vehicle to speak with an officer and kept reaching into his pockets after being asked to stop several times,” Chief Moore added.
Cook then gave officers consent to search his pockets. Officers found two pills in his pocket.
Kincaid then exited the vehicle and gave officers consent to search his pockets.
In Kincaid’s pockets officers found pills, drug paraphernalia, and marijuana.
“After returning to the vehicle officers noticed a syringe loaded with a brown substance on the driver seat,” added Chief Moore. “While searching the vehicle officers located heroin, several syringes, and various amounts of pills.”
Kincaid was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance, identity deception, possession of marijuana, possession of meth, unlawful possession of a syringe, visiting a common nuisance, and he was wanted on a warrant for petition to revoke.
Cook was arrested for dealing in a narcotic drug, possession of a narcotic drug, possession of a legend drug, possession of meth, possession of a controlled drug, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting arrest.
