Police Seize Gun, Meth, Cocaine From Man Found with Pants Down in Stolen Pickup Near School

Officers arrested a convicted felon Wednesday morning and seized a loaded handgun and a brick of cocaine after they found the man passed out, with his pants down, in a stolen pickup truck parked near an elementary school.

Around 7:40 AM, police received calls—some from school staff—about a partially-nude man engaged in lewd conduct at 11th Avenue Southwest and Southwest Cloverdale Street. When officers arrived, they found a 26-year-old driver with his pants down inside the pickup, which appeared to have been spray painted white. The man’s girlfriend was attempting to wake him, and officers could see a suspected methamphetamine pipe and a bong within the man’s reach in the vehicle’s console.

Officers discovered the vehicle was reported stolen and arrested the driver. Police then found a loaded handgun, a 24-gram brick of cocaine, 115 grams of methamphetamine in individual baggies, a 55-gram rock of methamphetamine, 149 fentanyl pills, and ammunition in the vehicle.

Officers booked the 26-year-old man—who is convicted felon—into jail for possession of a stolen vehicle and unlawful possession of a firearm.
