Napping motorist awakens to drug charge

A recent decision to take an evening nap in Tegels Park turned into a bit of a nightmare for a Slayton motorist.

At 12:43 a.m. on April 6, Windom police officers observed a vehicle parked in Tegels Park on Cottonwood Lake, well after closing time. As an officer approached the vehicle, he realized there was a man sleeping inside.

While checking on the motorist, the officer spotted some drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle. As a result, a 28-year-old Slayton man was arrested on possible charges of fifth-degree possession of drug paraphernalia, pending review by the county attorney’s office.

For more details on the past weeks worth of police activity in Windom and throughout the county, see the April 14 edition of the Cottonwood County Citizen and Citizen eEdition.
