A man with methamphetamine was arrested at a Circle K in The Villages.

James Harris Weber, 37, of Silver Springs, appeared to be nodding off Thursday morning in his car at the service station at 3 LaGrande Blvd. on the Historic Side of The Villages, according to an arrest report from the Lady Lake Police Department.

A police officer approached Weber’s vehicle, which had all of its windows rolled down. A metal straw commonly used for ingesting narcotics was spotted in the vehicle, as well as a loaded syringe on the floorboard. A paper bag in the vehicle contained several needles and a rock-like substance that tested positive as methamphetamine.

Weber was arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was booked at the Lake County Jail and released after posting $3,000 bond.
