Drug charges filed after suspect revives

Friday, November 16, 2012

A man found passed out in his car on Shapard Street was charged Tuesday after prescription drugs, for which he could not produce documentation, were found in his clothing.

Robert Terry Crowson, 50, of Earnhart Street had gained consciousness by the time medical personnel arrived. He was arrested for DUI as a strong odor of alcohol was present, police said, and Crowson was unable to pass field sobriety tests.

Sixteen Diazepam pills were discovered as Crowson was booked into Bedford County Jail, police said. Crowson was unable to produce a prescription for the drugs.

Charges of fifth offense DUI and possession of a schedule IV drug were filed against Crowson, who was being held on $20,000 bond Thursday.

Behind the wheel

Two arrests in two months for driving on a suspended license weren't enough to stop a driver from doing it again, police said.

Failure to use a turn signal led to the arrest of Randall Lynn Shinkle, 43, of Tremont Drive, police said.

Shinkle allegedly turned from Tremont Drive onto Madison Street late Tuesday night, where he was stopped by officer Jody Shelton -- who said he had stopped him for the same offense a month earlier.

His license was initially suspended for lack of vehicle insurance, police said. Shinkle told Shelton he couldn't afford insurance.

Shinkle was being held Wednesday on $7,500 bond.

Horse found

A black horse has been found on Unionville-Deason Road by the Bedford County Sheriff's Department.
