KOSCIUSKO — A report of a shirtless man entering a local restaurant led officers to arrest a man who was in possession of methamphetamine and told police he was “tweaking.”
Skye Michael David Stanley, 26, 418 S. Edgewater Drive, Syracuse, is being charged with possession of methamphetamine, a level 6 felony; possession of methamphetamine with enhancing circumstances, a level 5 felony; and carrying a handgun without a license, a class A misdemeanor.
On Sept. 3, an officer with the Warsaw Police Department responded to a call in regards to a male subject wearing no shirt entering a local restaurant. The caller advised that the shirtless man told them to call 911.
As the officer approached, he observed a male subject, later identified as Stanley, getting up out of the grass with no shirt on. The officer approached Stanley and placed him in handcuffs.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Stanley couldn’t stand still and told the officer there was a black SUV after him. The officer asked Stanley if he had taken anything to cause him to act this way. According to the report, Stanley advised he was “tweaking.” Stanley further admitted to smoking methamphetamine earlier in the day.
The officer located a handgun with one round in the chamber on Stanley’s person. Also located was a bag of white powder that tested positive for methamphetamine. A records check indicated that Stanley does not have a permit to carry the handgun.
Stanley was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail on Sept. 3, and later released on his own recognizance.
