MILTON, Ga. – A sleeping man was found to have several types of drugs on him Nov. 20.

Police were called to the CVS on Ga. 9 north of Bethany Bend about 4:20 p.m. after a man was reportedly sound asleep in his car and had been for several hours. When police woke him, the suspect, Kyle Jay Copp, 26, of Steeple Chase, Alpharetta, seemed disoriented. When asked if police could search his car, he refused.

A police dog was brought in and allegedly alerted at several places around the car, signifying possible drugs. A search of the car yielded two marijuana grinders, a bottle of vodka, a bottle of prescription pills, several wedding rings and gems, more than $200 cash and several plastic baggies containing a white powder and rocks, suspected methamphetamine.

Copp also allegedly refused to give his real name to police. He was arrested for possession of methamphetamines, possession of marijuana, driving with an open container of alcohol, possession of drug-related paraphernalia and giving a false name to police.
