Man charged with multiple drug crimes after his vehicle gets stuck near area home


A man who apparently got his pickup stuck in front of an area home has been arrested for the alleged possession of various controlled substances.

According to the office of Alamance County’s sheriff, deputies initially came across Clay Edgar Williamson on Sunday when they received a call about a suspicious vehicle along the 3600 block of Cook Road in the northern part of the county.

Williamson, of 7100 Old Greensboro Road, Chapel Hill, was reportedly in the driver’s seat of a Ford Ranger that appeared to be stuck in the front yard of an area home. According to the sheriff’s office, the 30-year-old white male, who seemed to be “under the influence of an unknown substance,” acknowledged that he was neither a resident of the home in question nor acquainted with the people who live in the dwelling. He nevertheless told deputies that he was with “others” inside the home – a claim that the deputies eventually debunked with the consent of the homeowners.

The deputies who handled this call took Williamson into custody after they found marijuana in his possession. A subsequent search of the Ford Ranger pickup revealed additional controlled substances as well as some drug paraphernalia. In the meantime, detention officers allegedly found methamphetamine in the suspects possession when he was later booked at Alamance County’s jail.

Williamson, who is also accused of misdemeanor paraphernalia possession, has been placed under a $25,000 bond.
