A New Carlisle man was arrested this morning after police officers allegedly found more than 60 used syringes in his vehicle during a traffic stop in Enon this summer.
Gregg A. Seebeck, 55, is facing charges of possession of drug abuse instruments and wrongful entrustment of a motor vehicle. He’s expected to appear in court at 10:30 a.m. today.
Seebeck and a woman he knows were driving through Enon on July 3 when they were stopped by police for allegedly not having a front license plate, according to a police report. The driver and Seebeck both admitted to using heroin earlier in the day, it said. Seebeck also told police he had used syringes in the trunk of the car, which were used for shooting up heroin, the report said.
After searching the car, officers allegedly found 60 used needles and five unused needles. Seebeck told officers that was about a week’s worth of syringes and that he planning to turn them in at a needle exchange, the report said.
Officers also allegedly found capsules containing white powder believed to be heroin and a cooler full of meat from Meijer. The woman told police Seebeck took orders for meat and would steal it to pay for his heroin addiction. A notebook located in the car allegedly had meat orders in it, the report said. Seebeck’s shirt also allegedly had red blood stains from the meat inside it, the report said.
A warrant for Seebeck’s arrest was issued on Sept. 12, court records said. He was arrested by the Greene County Sheriff’s Office early this morning and placed in the Clark County Jail, according to the jail website.
