Two men have been arrested after police found them using heroin in a McDonalds bathroom stall.
Christopher Rauen, 23, was taken into custody and charged with possession of a controlled substance.
Michael Ores, 23, is being charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of hypodermic needles and drug paraphernalia.
The way police were tipped off was actually quite unique in this case. According to the police report, Ores was talking on the phone with his fiancé but forgot to end the call and slid the phone in his pocket. His fiancé overheard Ores ask Rauen if he had any heroin and a syringe. She then called 911 and told police that both men may have drugs on them.
When police showed up to the McDonalds, they found both men in a single bathroom stall. After the men opened the door, police asked them what they were both doing in the stall, they simply responded, “nothing, why.”
According to police, they noticed blood-spotted toilet paper lying on the floor of the stall, an indication of IV drug use. At that time, Ores denied having any drugs on him. However, when police searched the bathroom stall, they found a small metal container, still hot from cooking heroin. They also found a syringe, which was tucked inside a baby-changing table.
Once police found the drugs, and the paraphernalia, Ores finally owned up to using heroin prior to the police showing up. When police searched Rauen, they found six empty bags, and four small bags of heroin inside his wallet.
Rauen even went on to brag about his hook-up, saying, “five baggies for $40.”
After a field test confirmed the drugs as heroin, both men were taken into custody.
