Grass Valley police: Drugs, loaded gun found on unconscious person behind the wheel
Grass Valley police say they arrested a Nevada City man after finding him passed out behind the wheel with suspected drugs and a loaded gun.
Police approached the person — later identified as 29-year-old Jeremy Sulley — around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday after responding to reports of someone slumped over while in the driver’s seat of a running vehicle, Sgt. Brian Blakemore said.
Officers were told Sulley had been unconscious for about two hours while in a parking lot, he added.
Approaching the black vehicle in the 12000 block of East Main Street, an officer saw a bong and suspected heroin on Sulley’s lap, Blakemore said.
“He put him through a series of tests and (was) found to be under the influence of a controlled substance,” Blakemore added.
A search of the vehicle revealed a loaded .22-caliber handgun, an illegal butterfly knife, over an ounce of suspected heroin, about 2 ounces of suspected methamphetamine, a pouch filled with unidentified pills and about $1,000 in cash, the sergeant said.
According to police, Sulley faces charges of possession of a loaded firearm in a vehicle, possession and transportation of controlled substances for sale while armed, possession of drug paraphernalia, being under the influence of a controlled substance, and possession of a butterfly knife and billy club.
