A Lake Orion man who told Northville Police he was sleepwalking when he took a cash box from Northville Downs faces narcotics charges after his vehicle was stopped at a hotel in Farmington Hills.
According to the Farmington Hills Police report, officers spoke with the 35-year-old Lake Orion resident after stopping his van at Knights Inn on Grand River, because the license plate was not registered. Police also noticed the registration tab was fraudulent; it was made of paper and taped to the license plate.
The report indicated that a search of the vehicle turned up a bag of marijuana concealed in a cigarette package, as well as orange pills and two white capsules. A check of the man's background showed he was a suspect in the Northville larceny. The date of that incident was not listed in the report.
The man was released pending investigation, according to the report.
