Drugs Linked to Store Temper Tantrum

(La Porte County, IN) - A suspected drug user is charged after allegedly causing a scene at a local chain store.


28-year-old Nicholas Lemons of Union Mills could face up to 30 months on each of two felony counts of possession of a narcotic and illegal possession of a syringe.


On August 2, police were called to Family Express in Kingsbury at 400 South and U.S. 35 on a report of a man being irate and throwing things inside the store. Upon arrival, officers said Lemons was “fidgety” and “picking at his skin.”


A search of his car allegedly uncovered a small amount of heroin and a used syringe.


According to court records, Lemons has a long history of crimes involving drugs and other offenses like robbery and burglary. In April, he was arrested on allegations of operating while intoxicated.
