STANVILLE, Ky. — Deputies called to investigate a report of a suspicious person found a man asleep behind the wheel of his car. But a closer look revealed that the car was still in gear, and his foot was on the brake.

After rousing the man, deputies reportedly found heroin, fentanyl, digital scales, plastic bags, drug paraphernalia and a handgun in the car.

Richard Anthony May, 33, of Pikeville, was arrested and charged with heroin trafficking, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of drug paraphernalia, DUI and other charges.
