Man arrested in Braddock for selling drug paraphernalia, giving police false name

A 43-year-old Orange County man was arrested in the Braddock area earlier this month for selling drug paraphernalia and providing a false statement to police after a concerned resident reported people passed out in a car.

On October 7, Alexandria Police found a black Acura TL parked in the 900 block of North Fayette Street. The man was asleep in the driver’s seat, and provided police with the false name of Thomas Sprow, police said in a search warrant affidavit.

Next to him in the passenger seat sat a 28-year-old woman drifting in and out of consciousness, with her door left open. Both the man and the woman were found to have outstanding warrants, and the woman (who had a failure to appear warrant) allegedly ran from police in her handcuffs before being apprehended a short distance away.

Police found more than 100 different types of pills on the male suspect, including Oxycontin, cough medicine, antidepressants, antipsychotics and antihistamines.

The man and woman complained of suffering from medical issues and were then transported to Inova Alexandria Hospital. While en route to the hospital, the woman told police that she took five one milligram “meth pills” an hour before in an effort to commit suicide, according to the affidavit.

The woman was not arrested or charged with any offense. The man was booked into the Alexandria Jail on October 10 and transferred to another facility on October 12, according to the Sheriff’s Office. He goes to court for both offenses on November 11.
