Oconee County Man Arrested For Drugs After Bathroom Break

Posted: Updated:
A man was arrested on a variety of drug charges after being found disoriented inside an Oconee County convenience store Sunday morning.

Oconee County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jimmy Watt said that Cory Glenn James, 24, of Walhalla, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of meth and possession of valium.

According to Watt, sheriff's deputies responded to a convenience store on South Highway 11 in the town of West Union after receiving a call that a man had gone into the store's restroom and did not come out for over a hour. When they arrived, they learned that the man did not respond to people knocking on the door. The deputies knocked on the door and did not receive a response, so they decided to enter the restroom where they found James disoriented, confused and wondering why they were there.

Watt said that deputies took James outside to speak with him. When asked whether he had any illegal drug on him, James said 'No.' James emptied his pockets, and in doing so, deputies found a white tube that contained meth. A subsequent search of James' vehicle by a K-9 deputy revealed valium, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia. 

James was placed under arrest and transported to the Oconee County Detention center where he was  released on $15,620 bond on Monday night.
