Berea Police: Man Found in Floor of Business, Cuffed on Ten Drug, Theft Charges


Berea Police recently took a man into custody at the Dollar General after a call came in that he was allegedly seen nodding off after being in the store for over three hours, sitting in the middle of the business’s floor.

When they arrived, police were at first unable to get a name and social security number from the suspect, Shannon Durham. He was not identified until police found his ID and car keys following a search after it was determined he was under the influence.

When the car the keys belong to was ran, police determined that the car was stolen. When searched, the car had suspected methamphetamine, marijuana, syringes, and an unidentified powdery substance within. Durham told police that he had gotten the car from a friend, according to the citation.

Durham was arrested and charged with public intoxication, receiving stolen property, theft of a motor vehicle, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of methamphetamine, marijuana, and an unspecified drug and remains lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
