Police: 'Mere Encounter' Leads to Discovery of Heroin Needles
Lower Saucon Township police say that after an officer encountered Casey Kavitt, 44, of Moore Township, walking along Apple Street on Feb. 21, Kavitt admitted to having four used heroin needles in his possession.
A "mere encounter" between a police officer and a man walking along a dark and secluded Lower Saucon Township road will result in the filing of a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia against the man, township police said in a press release Sunday.
Police said that Casey Kavitt, 44, of the 2400 block of Schlegel Road, Moore Township, was walking along Apple Street and wearing dark clothing when an officer encountered him at 9:02pm Feb. 21.
Kavitt then "engaged in a conversation with the officer and kept reaching for his pocket," police said.
Kavitt's behavior prompted the officer to ask him if he had anything illegal in his possession, and Kavitt responded "that he had four used needles that he uses for heroin," the press release indicated.
