On Friday at approximately 10:20 p.m., two Fenton police cars were dispatched to Tropi-Tan on North Leroy Street, for a suspicious person locked in a restroom, Fenton Police Chief Rick Aro said.
Officers spoke with the manager of the business, who showed them the locked bathroom at the rear of the building.
Officers open the door and found a woman bent over holding a bottle of what she identified as witch hazel, he said. She appeared to be having some type of medical problem, and one of the officers saw a syringe and needle in her purse, Aro said.
Police found suspected heroin in her purse and arrested her for possession of the drug. Once it was determined her health was not a concern, they lodged her overnight in the Fenton lockup, police said. The evidence in her purse was seized, and the suspected heroin will be tested in a lab for identification, Aro said.
The woman, 23, lives in Fenton and is on probation, he said. Police contacted her probation officer and are sending a report to the prosecutor for her possession of approximately 2 grams of suspected heroin.
Loud party and unauthorized bonfire reported
Around midnight on Sunday, Fenton police received a report of a loud party in the 800 block of Westwood Drive, Aro said. Two police vehicles were dispatched and officers met with the homeowner.
They informed the man, 50, that the party was too loud and the fire wasn’t authorized, he said. People at the party appeared intoxicated, police said. The people at the residence turned down the music, but officers found the homeowner had an outstanding bench warrant from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department for driving under the influence of alcohol, Aro said.
Fenton police arrested the homeowner and turned him over to Livingston County Sheriff’s Department, meeting a deputy at U.S. 23 and Owen Road. Livingston County Sheriff’s Department placed the Fenton man in jail pending court contact, Aro said.
