Man Caught Urinating In Grocery Store Parking Lot, 2 Friends Arrested

Selma Police have arrested three people after officers were called to the parking lot of the Food Lion on US 301 South.

Police said they were dispatched to a call at 10:02pm Thursday after a female reportedly saw a man exit a pickup parked in a handicapped parking space, lift up his shirt, drop his pants, urinate on the pavement, then get back into the truck and shoot up drugs.

Police arrived and found a gray Dodge Dakota truck improperly parked in a handicapped space with no handicapped sticker or license plate.

The only occupant in the truck, Michael Timothy Bowen, 33, of Goldsboro, said he was waiting for his friends to come out of Food Lion where they had gone shopping. Police said Bowen was extremely sweaty and jittery and kept on placing his hands in his pockets.  Officers detained Bowen just as his two friends were exiting the store.  During a search Oxycodone and Hydrochloride were found in a plastic bag in his pocket.

According to police reports Bowen’s two friends, Ronald Colvin Narron II, 56, of Bakers Chapel Road, Princeton and Amy Bailey Lewis, 44, of Braswell Road, Smithfield approached the truck.  Narron was sweaty, nervous and unable to stand still.   Lewis voluntarily handed over her purse to police allegedly saying, “You can search it. I don’t care. I don’t have anything.”

Police said they found bologna and pork chops in the purse that had just been shoplifted from Food Lion. Under those items in the purse officers reportedly found crystal methamphetamine in a plastic bag.

Narron, who was on probation for methamphetamine and must submit to warrantless searches, was patted down by police.  Officers allegedly located a clear plastic bag with methamphetamine concealed inside his cell phone holder on his hip.  A container was also located containing Oxycodone, Hydrochloride and a metal tube.

According to the eyewitness, Bowen pulled up his shirt and dropped his pants and peed in the parking lot beside the truck.  The witness stated she then saw Bowen tie a bandanna around his arm and shoot some kind of drug into his arm with a syringe.

Bowen was charged with indecent exposure, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond was set at $16,000.

Narron was charged with possession of methamphetamines, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.  Bail was set at $12,500.

Lewis was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamines, possession of drug paraphernalia and habitual larceny.  Bail was set at $25,000.
