A Cumberland County man out of jail on bond on a host of drug charges was arrested two days after his latest appearance in Criminal Court on new drug charges, according to sheriff’s office reports.
Edward Junior Sherrill, 48 335 Doris Dr., now faces charges of felony possession of methamphetamine, simple possession of oxycodone, simple possession of buprenorphine and possession of drug paraphernalia, stemming from his Nov. 16 arrest.
Sherrill appeared in Criminal Court on Nov. 14 in a wheelchair for the deadline docket, and his cases were continued to the Jan. 15 discussion docket and Jan. 23 deadline docket. He was in court facing charges of two counts of felony possession of oxymorphone, simple possession of methamphetamine, simple possession of alprazolam and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The Pubic Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Sherrill in the those cases.
Reserve Deputy Norman Seiber wrote in his report that on Nov. 16 he was at a Market St. address to serve a warrant when he noticed the driver of a vehicle parked in the driveway slumped over.
After failed attempts to wake the man — which included breaking out the driver’s-side window — an ambulance was called to the scene.
When the man, whom he identified in the report as Sherrill, was being treated by first responders, he recovered small bag of pills between the seat and the door, a container with a powdery substance the deputy identified as meth and a syringe.
Once the man was awakened, he allegedly became combative with responders and was placed in handcuffs. At that point, the man refused treatment at the hospital and was taken to the Justice Center where he was booked on the new charges.
