Authorities found a man passed out in a vehicle with hypodermic syringes and heroin in the seat beside him. The Salisbury Police received a call about a man inside a Honda parked in the 1200 block of Stephen Drive. The man was unconscious behind the wheel of the car, a report said.
Officers charged Nathan Adam Grissom, 29, of the 200 block of Camp Road, Salisbury, with felony possession with intent to manufacture a controlled substance, felony maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
The officer could see two syringes, a cellophane wrapper with a black substance inside and one syringe with a brown liquid substance inside. The substances were later confirmed to be heroin.
Grissom told the officer the “heroin wasn’t for him, it was for his baby mama,” a report said.
Grissom remains in the Rowan County jail under a $25,000 secured bond. He was convicted twice in February 2011 of drug possession.
