Gas Station Welfare Check Leads to Drug Arrest
Thursday morning, officers responded for a welfare check on an individual in the restroom of a local fuel station.
According to officer notes, a male identified as a 20-year-old Tanner H. Graap had been in the restroom for over 15 minutes; raising the concern of the station clerk.
Officers then knocked on the restroom door and received an inaudible response. Officers then acquired a second key for the door and made entry, at which point Graap attempted to push past the two officers present and resisted their efforts of taking him into custody.
Once in custody, 2 gem bags containing a total .6 grams of Methamphetamine were discovered on Graap’s person, as well as a syringe, a pair of brass knuckles and other paraphernalia used in the consumption of Methamphetamine.
Graap was later transported to the Lincoln County Jail on charges of Disorderly Conduct, Resisting/Obstructing an Officer, Felony-Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Carrying a Concealed Weapon.
