A 24-year-old man was arrested on drug charges after witnesses say they saw him walk into a video game store in Milton, ask for a Dr. Pepper and then knock down some displays on his way out of the store.
A n employee of the GameStop store on Windward Parkway in Milton told police a man came into the store, approached the counter and asked for a Dr. Pepper. The employee told the suspect "that this is a GameStop and they do not carry Dr. Pepper," the police report said. As the suspect walked away from the display cases he knocked down, the GameStop employee said he noticed blood all over the man. So he called Milton police as he believed the suspect was under the influence and was covered in blood.
Alpharetta police found the suspect at a MARTA bus stop on Windward Parkway. He told police the beer bottle near where he was standing was his, and that he had just bought and drank it.
A search of his backpack revealed four GPS units, six cell phones, seven chargers, five simcards and a knife. It also contained a glass pipe.
A search of the suspect revealed a syringe between his rear waistband and boxer shorts and a yellow container. Inside the container were four pills police say were Hydrocodone and 3.5 Alprazolam pills.
Myles Benjamin M. Adams, 24, of Alpharetta (South Forsyth), was arrested on possession of Schedule III and Schedule IV drugs, both felony counts, drugs not kept in original container and disorderly conduct. He is being held in Fulton County Jail in lieu of $13,000 bond.
Alpharetta Man Busted on Drug Charges after Trying to Visit Ex-Girlfriend
An Alpharetta man shouldn't have come back to his ex-girlfriend's house for the second time, because while the first time he left on his own, the second time Milton police took him away in handcuffs.
The ex-girlfriend's brother told the man to leave their property when he showed up on Jan. 15 asking for some of his things. The brother called his dad for help. The man left, but he returned when Milton police were at the home. An officer said in an incident report that the suspect smelled of alcohol and admitted having an open container in his car.
The officer said he spotted the open container and what appeared to be Vicodin, a Schedule III controlled substance, in plain view in the vehicle.
Dustin James King, 33, of Alpharetta, was arrested on charges of felony possession of a Schedule III drug, open container violation in a vehicle, prescription drugs not kept in their original container and failure to carry his driver's license. He was released on $5,000 bond on Jan. 16, awaiting a court hearing.
