CLEAR LAKE | A Mason City man who was found slumped over in his vehicle at Kwik Star has been arrested for possessing drugs.
Logan Scott Smith, 30, is charged with misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance, first offense following an incident at 3205 Willow Creek Court in Clear Lake.
About 4:47 a.m. Jan. 27, a Clear Lake police officer checked the welfare of driver who was reported to be at the Kwik Star gas pumps for an extended period of time.
Smith was found slumped over inside the vehicle with an uncapped hypodermic needle in his lap, according to court documents. A 10 mg tablet of methylphenidate was found during a search of his vehicle, court documents said.
“Methylphenidate is a Central Nervous Stimulant which is a Schedule Two Controlled Substance and also a prescription drug which the defendant did not have a prescription for,” the criminal complaint said.
A warrant was requested due to several unsuccessful attempts to contact the Smith by phone, according to court documents. A statewide warrant issued Feb. 28.
Smith was arrested in Polk County on March 1. He was transported to Cerro Gordo County Jail Sunday. Smith then posted a $500 bond and was released.
He is scheduled to appear in Cerro Gordo County District Court March 16.
