State troopers say 27-year-old Mark Dzielski was in his car behind the Country Fair at the intersection of routes 60 and 20 in Fredonia with the syringe sticking out of his arm. They called EMTs to the scene, but Dzielski refused medical treatment. Police say he had heroin and Xanax.
He is charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of hypodermic needles and having a controlled substance not in its original container. He was also charged with violations of vehicle and traffic laws. He is scheduled to appear in Town of Pomfret Court on Tuesday.
