Officers responded to a report of a man passed out in a car in the 300 block of Lincoln Park Circle shortly after 9 a.m. Monday, Dec. 11. They allegedly found Whitt behind the wheel of a 2002 Ford Taurus, according to court records, and noticed a plastic bag sticking out of Whitt’s left pants pocket that contained an unknown white substance.
Whitt allegedly told police the bag contained crystal methamphetamine, court records say. Police also alleged they found cash, drugs and drug paraphernalia throughout the vehicle, along with a handgun in the back seat of the car. Some of the drugs were packed in small plastic bags, indicating there were being used for individual sales, court records say.
