A man allegedly high on meth was found passed out in a vehicle parked in northwest Edmond, police said.
Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Mark Myers said just after 8 a.m. Wednesday a deputy was driving in the 7600 block of Northwest 234th St. in Edmond when he noticed a white Dodge pickup parked on the side of the road.
Myers said the deputy approached the vehicle and found a man inside passed out, and the vehicle was running without a key in the ignition.
The deputy attempted to make contact with the man in the truck, William Keith Talbott, 32, of Oklahoma City, who took several minutes to wake up and acknowledge the deputy’s presence, Myers said.
While speaking with the deputy Talbott thought he was in Shawnee and admitted to using methamphetamine around 3 a.m. or 4 a.m. that same morning, according to a report released by the sheriff’s office.
Myers said inside the truck the deputy found a plastic bag containing what looked like a crystal-like substance that later tested positive for methamphetamine; the deputy also found a syringe.
The deputy also determined that the truck was reported stolen out of Oklahoma City on May 13, Myers said.
Myers said Talbott was arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center on complaints of possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, actual physical control possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of stolen property.
Talbott is currently in jail and his bond has been set at $8,500, according to jail records. Initial criminal probable cause paperwork was filed Friday in Oklahoma County District Court.
