A Killeen man was arraigned Thursday on a charge of possession of methamphetamine.

Wesley Daniel Whitehead, 39, was arraigned on a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance more than 1 gram but less than 4 grams by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke.

According to an arrest affidavit, an officer with the Killeen Police Department was dispatched to the 1200 block of E. Avenue G on Wednesday in reference to a burglary in progress.

The officer stated that the caller reported that a man wearing a blue shirt and khaki shorts was attempting to make entry into his truck, according to the report.

The officer said he and another officer made contact with the man, who was identified as Whitehead.

According to the report, the officer stated that Whitehead appeared to be under the influence of narcotics, and requested that emergency medical services come to the scene.

The officer said that once EMS arrived, the decision to place Whitehead under an order of emergency detention was made based on Whitehead’s altered mental status, according to the affidavit.

The officer said he then searched Whitehead and located two clear plastic bags containing a clear crystal-like substance, according to the report.

The officer said each field tested positive for methamphetamine with a total weight of 1.5 grams.

Cooke set Whitehead’s bail at $30,000.
