      Man found asleep in van clutching meth pipe

      Daniel Dawson was arrested and charged with two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance and the misdemeanor of unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.
      Authorities arrested a Jefferson City man after they found him asleep in a car with a meth pipe in his hands. On Tuesday at about 3 a.m. a Cole County Sheriff's deputy found Daniel Dawson asleep in the front passenger seat of his mini van in the 3700-block of Bird Haven Road. The deputy said Dawson was holding a clear glass pipe, commonly used to smoke meth, in his hands as he slept. The deputy then found a small amount of a white, crystal-like substance folded in a receipt in Dawson's pocket. Then, in the van, the deputy found a metal tin which had pain pills inside along with Concerta, a drug commonly used for ADHD, along with zip lock baggies, and a spoon. Dawson was arrested and charged with two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance and the misdemeanor of unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.
