CUMMING, Ga. — A concerned citizen called 911 to report a man who had been sitting unconscious in his running car, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.
At about 10 a.m. Dec. 18, someone shopping at Kroger, 2655 Freedom Parkway, told deputies there was a young man slumped over the steering wheel in a car in the front parking lot.
The person told Kroger employees he had been in his car for about 20 minutes with the car running.
When deputies arrived, they walked up to the silver Toyota 4-Runner and saw the man still slumped over the steering wheel.
Deputies knocked on the window, and the man raised his head. Deputies saw a wooden cutting board in his lap with an uncovered syringe lying on it, the cap and a bottle top with a brown color substance inside it.
Deputies opened the door and ordered the man to hold out his hands while they grabbed the cutting board.
The man was shaking, sweating and seemed confused as he was ordered out of the car.
The man said the substance was heroin, but the syringe belonged to another man who was there with him.
Deputies saw no other person with him and did not find one.
Cameron O’Reilly, 22, was charged with possession of a hallucinogen, a felony, and possession of marijuana under one ounce, a misdemeanor.
O’Reilly was taken to Forsyth County Detention Center.
