Indianapolis man charged with syringe possession

While being arrested on three warrants, an Indianapolis man threw a burnt spoon and a syringe into his car July 17, police say.

Brown County Sheriff’s Deputy Gregory D. Pittman reported in a probable cause affidavit that Jason D. Richardson, 27, admitted that the spoon and syringe were his, and that the spoon was used for drugs.

Pittman found the items in Richardson’s rear passenger floorboard. Richardson threw them there after being asked to empty his pockets prior to being arrested, the affidavit said.

On July 18, Richardson was charged with unlawful possession of a syringe, a Level 6 felony, and possession of paraphernalia, a Class C misdemeanor.
