Eureka Police arrested a 19-year-old Union woman and a 40-year-old St. Louis man for alleged possession of drugs outside a Motomart gas station. Police were called to the gas station, 5695 Fox Creek Road, because the two appeared to need medical assistance, police reported.
When officers arrived at the station at about 4 p.m. Aug. 15, they found the two inside a 2002 Toyota Corolla, and they appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance. The Eureka Fire Protection District was called to check on their condition, but the man and woman refused medical treatment, the report said.
Police discovered the woman was wanted in St. Charles County on a felony drug warrant, and the man was wanted in St. Louis and St. Charles County on warrants for traffic violations. After they were arrested, police allegedly found the man with a glass smoking pipe with burnt residue on it, according to the report.
Police also found a black metal box between the passenger-side seat and the center console, and the box allegedly contained a sock with a small cup inside filled with a white powdery substance. Police also allegedly found pills in the box, the report said.
The two were taken to the Police Station, where they were booked. The woman was held for St. Charles County Police, and the man was released pending application for warrants, police reported.
Depending on results from the drug analysis, Eureka Police will seek charges against the man and woman through the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for possession of a controlled substance. The man also was issued citations to appear in Eureka Municipal Court for driving with a revoked license, possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to register a motor vehicle, Capt. David Wilson said.
