“Where’s my meth?”

It’s not where you dropped it, that’s for sure.

A Bermuda Run man was arrested Saturday, charged with possession of methamphetamine after a bag of the crystal substance had apparently fallen out of his pocket, according to Davie Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Brian Jacobs.

Graham Miller Troutman, 32, of Bermuda Run Drive, was charged with felony possession of methemphetamine and taken into custody in lieu of a $5,000 bond. His first court appearance is May 23 in Davie District Court.

Jacobs reported that a video surveillance camera had spotted a plastic baggie containing a while crystal-like substance falling from Troutman’s pocket at the Quality Mart on US 64 W., Mocksville.

While deputies were investigating the call after a store employee called about finding the baggie, Troutman was on the scene, walking around the building like  he was looking for something, Jacobs said. The suspect gave conflicting information about what he was doing.
