Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office arrested two area men on felony drug charges in two separate incidents over the weekend.
In the first incident, William C. Boggs Jr., 44, of 8591 County Road 44, North Lewisburg, was charged with felony possession of drugs Friday evening after a suspicious vehicle complaint.
Deputies responded to 9466 Township Road 160, North Lewisburg, about 10:35 p.m. after a resident at that address reported that a white car was parked in the driveway with its headlights on.
Mr. Boggs was found asleep in the driver’s seat, and the vehicle’s engine was running.
He was asked to exit the vehicle, and deputies performed field sobriety tests. The defendant’s eyes reportedly were dilated and he admitted to taking several Xanax that day. He told deputies that he wasn’t sure where he was or where he had been going in the vehicle.
During a search of Mr. Boggs’ vehicle, a baggy containing 21 Xanax pills was located. Deputies also noted that the vehicle had sustained dents on the driver’s side that also contained flecks of green paint.
The defendant was transported to the Logan County Jail. Further charges are pending the results of drug tests.
