HUNTINGTON - The following information was provided by reports from the Cabell County Sheriff’s Office:

A Kentucky man was found in possession of $3,000 worth of methamphetamine after being passed out in a motorized wheelchair at a department store on U.S. 60.

According to a report from the Cabell County Sheriff’s Office, police found the 37-year-old man from Louisa, Kentucky, Friday passed out in motorized wheelchair shopping cart at the entrance of a store in the 3300 block of U.S. 60.

Several unsuccessful attempts were made to wake the man by individuals with Cabell County Emergency Medical Services and a deputy with the Cabell County Sheriff’s Office.

Following these attempts, the deputy searched through a small bag in the man’s lap in order to find identification, the report states.

He was then taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center for further treatment.
