MIRAMAR BEACH — A 54-year-old man was arrested for possession of drugs after he was found asleep next to a hotel.

A Walton County sheriff’s deputy noticed the man sleeping on the grass next to the Sleep Inn at about 1 a.m. He confronted the man, asked him for his ID and if he had anything illegal on him.

The man gave the deputy a small container with meth in it. When he patted the man down, the deputy also found a small amount of marijuana in a bag in a pocket of his cargo shorts.

The man was arrested and charged with marijuana possession and possession of methamphetamines within 1,000 feet of a church. Destiny Worship Center is located near to the hotel.
