A man is facing drug charges after an incident in the 1-thousand block of Adams in Lebanon on Wednesday. Officers were dispatched for a report of a man sleeping in a jeep that was blocking a driveway. Upon arrival, Lebanon police officers found that the vehicle license plates belonged to a Chevrolet vehicle and not a Jeep. Officers then made contact with the driver, 50-year-old William J. Cato, who they observed appeared to be under the influence. A search of Cato allegedly revealed marijuana in his pocket. Cato told officers he does not have a medical marijuana card, and he was taken into custody. A search of the vehicle produced three bags of a crystal substance, which later tested positive as methamphetamine. Also found were syringes, spoons, scales, and other drug paraphernalia. Cato insisted to officers that he does not do drugs. Cato was found guilty in 2006 in Pulaski County of Distribution and Delivery of a Controlled Substance and is currently on probation. He was charged with resisting arrest in January of 2020 in Pulaski County. Cato was transported to the Laclede County Jail.
