Man charged with injecting heroin at Florida police station

A man was busted on charges of using the public restroom in the lobby of a Florida police station to shoot heroin.

Samuel Alicea, 35, entered the Lakeland Police Department to utilize the bathroom near the front desk around 8 a.m. Friday, Fox 35 Orlando reported.

A desk officer heard a loud thump coming from the restroom. The officer knocked on the locked door and yelled out without getting a response, the station reported.

Officers used a key to gain entry and found Alicea lying on the ground, unconscious and unresponsive.

According to a report, an officer observed several items on the sink which included measuring spoons, small plastic baggies and a syringe, Fox 35 reported.

“Alicea was bleeding from the arm and it appeared he had just injected himself,” Lakeland Police said on Facebook.

He was treated at the hospital and released, the station reported.

The Lakeland resident was booked at the Polk County Jail on charges of possessing heroin and drug paraphernalia.
