A man arriving at the Courts Building for an appearance on a meth possession charge had some incriminating evidence in his pocket, authorities said.
Security guards said the metal detector at the entrance to the Courts Building hit on metal when 30-year-old Buford Nunley tried to enter.
Nunley was asked about any metal item he might have on him by guards concerned about the possibility of a weapon.
Instead, Nunley pulled out a metal canister.
Guards said in the canister they found a bag of meth along with 6.5 pills identified as subuten. Nunley could not provide a prescription for the pills.
Now Nunley will face two meth charges when he returns to the Courts Building on Jan. 3.
