COPPERAS COVE — Police said they confiscated 8.4 grams of methamphetamine from a vehicle Sunday after an officer noticed a hypodermic needle between the front seats near the emergency brake.

Norman Eugene Schofield was pulled over for allegedly driving 58 mph in a 45 mph zone in the 1400 block of First Street.

According to reports, police asked Schofield if he was diabetic and he said no.

When officers asked Schofield if any narcotics or weapons were in the vehicle, he again replied no.

Officers informed Schofield they had seen a syringe between the seats and had probable cause to search the vehicle.

Police records said Schofield then confessed that there was some methamphetamine near the driver’s side door.

Officers found a camera case that contained a clear plastic bag with white powder on the floor board next to the driver’s side door.

The substance field tested positive for methamphetamine, according to police reports.

Schofield was arraigned by Judge William Price on $25,000 bond.
