(BEDFORD) – A Bedford man was arrested on a warrant for dealing meth.

Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department deputies arrested 19-year-old Brandon Spencer, on charges of dealing meth, possession of meth, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to a probable cause affidavit, on September 25, 2020, at approximately 8:40 a.m. officers responded to the Dollar General store parking lot in Judah after a report of an unconscious male inside a vehicle.

When police arrived they found Spencer inside a Chevrolet Cobalt with the vehicle still running.

Spencer was unresponsive to verbal commands and/ or physical stimulation. Spencer regained consciousness after paramedics removed Spencer from the vehicle and began treatment.

Inside the vehicle, officers found a baggie with meth in it on the floor between the seat and door.

A black and white cardboard box that contained several clear baggies that contained meth and three butane torches were found by Paramedics. Butane torches are used to heat the drug before smoking it.

Officers secured the vehicle and obtained a search warrant.

The complete vehicle search resulted in seizing more than 4 grams of meth in the glove box, a smoking device containing marijuana, a baggie of marijuana under the front seat, a green container that contained marijuana wax or dab under the driver’s seat, two meth smoking devices in the glove box, digital scales, rolling papers and a marijuana smoking device on the floorboard.

Spencer was taken to IU Health Bedford Hospital for treatment. 

The information was forwarded to the Lawrence County Prosecutor’s Officer and a warrant was issued for Spencer’s arrest.
