A LaFayette man was arrested for drug possession while standing in front of a residence on Foster Circle in LaFayette.

The occupants of the residence said they did not know the man.

According to LaFayette Police Department reports:

On Saturday, Nov. 22, between 1:36 a.m. and 2 a.m., 32-year-old Christopher T. Henderson was standing outside of a residence on Foster Circle.

The occupants did not know Henderson and as officers were dispatched to the scene, Henderson said he was waiting for a woman named “Nancy.”

The male resident said he did not know Henderson, but said his wife’s name is “Nancy.”

The wife said she did not know Henderson and had no knowledge of Henderson visiting the residence.

Henderson was reported to have a nervous demeanor and speaking very fast and jittery to officers.

Henderson was asked if he had any weapons or illegal contraband on his person and he said “no.”

Henderson agreed to a search and was found with a small baggie containing 0.25-mg of Alprazolam pills, a Scheduled IV drug.

Alprazolam (also known as Xanax) is used to treat anxiety, panic disorders, and anxiety caused by depression.

At the front door of the residence, a black case containing a needle, syringe and a spoon was discovered.

Henderson was arrested at the scene and confessed to owning the black case and its contents and said he received the pills from a family member.
