A South Carolina man was arrested this past Wednesday after applying for a loan so he could purchase meth.

58-year-old Grady Carson went to Carolina Title Loans try and get a loan using his vehicle’s title.

An employee told officers that he told her he needed the money to purchase meth.

Her manager was at another store location, so she “faxed a help letter” to the other employee on duty, who called the police.

When officers arrived, he was handcuffed and found to have “a glass container with an off white rock like substance inside.” He told cops it was cocaine, but he was “not going to smoke it because he did meth,” according to the report.

He’s been charged with narcotics possession and was booked into the county jail.

He was released early Thursday.
