A man sleeping in his car inside a car wash has been busted on drug and weapons charges.
The slumbering suspect, Matthew C. Zahn, 23, is charged with possession of drugs and possession of a firearm during a dangerous felony.
His charges come after police were directed to a stall at Village Car Wash on North Chancery Street. They were told there was a man who had been sitting inside the car, sleeping for several hours.
“I observed a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle,” said McMinnville policeman Justin Cobble, noting he also saw a pill bottle in plain sight. “The bottle contained a crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine.”
Once the officer had Zahn out of his Chevy Camaro he went on to find a gun tucked between the driver seat and middle console. Along with the Glock, the lawman found a backpack containing two grams of marijuana along with a scale and empty baggies.
