OC Cops Bust Lake Elsinore Man On Suspicion Of Heroin, Meth Possession

Officers allegedly discovered a Lake Elsinore man with heroin and methamphetamine.

Deputies in San Juan Capistrano arrested Tuesday night a Lake Elsinore man on suspicion of possessing heroin and methamphetamine, a felony.

At about 8:10 p.m., deputies noticed Tyler Monroe McCoy, 48, sitting in his truck at the Shell station near the I-5 interchange on Ortega Highway.

“They observed McCoy in the driver’s seat smoking something off of a piece of foil with an object similar to a straw,” according to Lt. John Meyer, the chief of police services for San Juan Capistrano.

Deputies performed a search and found what appeared to be heroin and methamphetamine in his pants pocket, Meyer said. Further searching the car netted what they suspected to be heroin and methamphetamine, he said.

McCoy was previously found in Orange County possessing an assault weapon. He plead guilty to those felony charges in 2007.

Heroin, meth and an illegal assault weapon. It would be interesting to know how he obtained that weapon. Probably not difficult since there are 15 million guns manufactured in the U.S. every year making them readily available to criminals and cheap also.

Undoubtedly the gun was stolen from a law abiding citizen along with all the other loot they pawned to buy drugs.
