A local man was charged after police allegedly found syringes and methamphetamine under the passenger seat of the driver’s car.

According to a North Liberty police complaint, Paul Perrin was charged Sept. 14 with third-offense possession of a controlled substance after an officer issued a citation for registration violation.

The officer searched Perrin's vehicle and allegedly found a glasses case under the passenger seat containing a pop bottle cap, tourniquet, Q Tips, and syringes, the complaint said.

According to the complaint, Perrin said he used the syringes for diabetes. Crystals inside the bottle cap tested positively for methamphetamine after the officer conducted a test. Perrin later admitted to being addicted to methamphetamine, the complaint said.

Perrin has two previous convictions for possession of methamphetamine.

Third-offense possession of a controlled substance is a class-D felony.
