OMAK, Wash. -- An Okanogan County Sheriff’s sergeant arrested a man for possession of meth while he was getting lunch at Arby’s.
Around 2:35 p.m. Tuesday, Sgt. Gene Davis went to Arby’s in Omak to grab lunch. While he was waiting to order, officials said he saw two men enter Arby’s and walk up to the counter in front of him to order. One of the men was later identified as Richard Marsden, 63.
Authorities said while they were in line, Davis noticed that as Marsden was moving around a small clear baggie with a white powder inside began to slide out of the back of his baseball hat. Davis said as he saw more of the bag he could tell it was meth.
Officials said as the baggie started to fall out of his hat, Davis took control of the baggie and Marsden. Marsden told Davis he forgot the meth was in his baseball hat because he would have used it.
Davis took Marsden to his patrol car, went back in to get his lunch and transported Marsden to the Okanogan County Jail. He was booked for possession of methamphetamine.
