Comments Off on Danny Carlson, 32, of Missoula, found injecting Methamphetamine in Missoula Fresh Market grocery store bathroom

A man was arrested Monday after he was allegedly found injecting methamphetamine in the bathroom of a Missoula grocery store.

Danny Carlson, 32, appeared in Missoula County Justice Court on Tuesday, charged with felony possession of dangerous drugs as well misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to an affidavit, Missoula police were dispatched to the Missoula Fresh Market on West Broadway on Monday after two people called 911 to report a man injecting drugs in the bathroom.

An officer found Carlson sitting on a toilet in the bathroom, holding a hypodermic needle with the tip in a bottle cap, the affidavit stated. He also saw a plastic baggie with a white crystalline substance in Carlson’s other hand.

After handcuffing Carlson, the officer asked what he had been doing, to which Carlson allegedly replied he was using “ice.”

Carlson confirmed the drug was meth and told the officer there was more liquid meth in the syringe, and more syringes in either his jacket or the backpack on the floor next to him, the affidavit stated. A search of the backpack turned up four empty syringes.

The material in the syringe Carlson was holding, as well as the substance in the baggie, tested positive for methamphetamine, the affidavit stated.

In court Tuesday, Justice of the Peace Marie Andersen set Carlson’s bail at $5,000 and scheduled a preliminary hearing for Jan. 13.
