Minden Police locate syringes, drugs in vehicle
An erratic driver, who took a shot at driving under the influence, was picked up by Minden Police early Monday, with more than 60 syringes and suspected steriods in his vehicle.
Dakota Capps, 20, of the 200 block of S. Tanglewood, was arrested for underage driving while intoxicated (second offense), driving left of center and possession of CDS Sch. III.
Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper said Officer 1st Class Chris Hammontree saw Capps' Ford Explorer traveling west on Country Club Circle. The vehicle reportedly had no visible license plate and was crossing the fog line and double yellow line.
"According to the officer, the vehicle bumped the double yellow line several times, so he conducted a traffic stop and made contact with the driver," Cropper said. "Ofc. Hammontree conducted a field sobriety test, and Capps was totally unable to perform the test."
Capps was reportedly transported to the Minden Police Department where he tested above the legal limit on the Intoxilyzer 5000.
Cropper said officers searched Capps' vehicle and reportedly found 68 syringes and a 10 millimeter vial of suspected Boldenone Undeclynat – a type of steroid.
"The syringes and suspected steroid were taken into evidence," said the chief.
