A 20-year-old Auburn transient was arrested Wednesday for drug possession after allegedly injecting heroin in multiple locations.

Auburn Police were dispatched to the Sierra Doctors office at 275 Grass Valley Highway on a suspicious circumstances call after Connor Michael Morris walked into the office and went into the men’s restroom and allegedly injected heroin, according to a press release issued by the Auburn Police Department Thursday.

Morris had allegedly left heroin paraphernalia behind after he vacated the restroom and then allegedly trespassed at nearby residence by climbing a fence, gaining access to the home’s backyard. According to police, Morris then allegedly used heroin again on the patio and left more paraphernalia behind.

Auburn Police then made contact with the 20-year-old in the 100 block of Grass Valley Highway and placed him under arrest for being under the influence of a controlled substance. Morris was also allegedly in possession of heroin at the time of his apprehension and was booked in the Placer County Jail on possession of heroin and being under the influence of a controlled substance.

As of Thursday he was in custody with bail set at $20,000.
