A Dexter man was arrested on criminal possession of controlled substance charges, after using the drug methlemethacthinone and believing someone was chasing him in his home.
At 9 p.m. Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call placed by a resident in Brownville that 45-year-old Steven W. LaClair believed someone was attempting to break in through a crawl space, and was chasing him with a syringe.
Several knives were removed from his living quarters, and a syringe was located in a pile of clothing. During the investigation deputies also located two clear containers, one with a label stating, “Instructions: dissolve entire contents in 2 cups of water to make the world’s best glass cleaner.” After testing the solution, the contents tested positive for methlemethacthinone, which is a schedule one drug.
LaClair is charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th. He was transported to the Public Safety Building, processed and sent to the Jefferson County Jail on $350 cash or $1,000 bond.
Methlemethacthinone is commonly associated with amphetamines, or a stimulant.
