Two men in the their twenties were arrested on Monday after police spotted them trying to shoot up outside of the Lawrence Police station in Massachusetts. Ilyass Nabih, 25, and Thony Sengsoulya, 29, were parked outside of the police station attempting to use heroin, CBS News reports.
“The officer observed a vehicle parked in a police parking spot, which is restricted area for police vehicles only and the car was actually at an angle where it was taking up a couple of spots,” Lawrence Police Chief John Romero told CBS Boston.
Patrolman Adam Goujon approached the silver Honda Pilot at 12:30 pm, according to the Massachusetts Eagle-Tribune.
“He was holding a needle,” Goujon said, referring to Nabih, who was in the driver’s seat. “I said, ‘You’re shooting up right in front of the police station?’ He said, ‘I know, I messed up.’ I couldn’t believe the audacity.”
Nabih was charged with heroin possession.
Sengsoulya was charged with knowingly being present where heroin is kept.
The men, who are both from Nashua, New Hampshire, claimed that they drove to the station to report a car accident that they had been involved in earlier that day.
“All those police cars should have been a hint that perhaps they were in the wrong place,” Romero said. “It’s not a good idea, especially when you are parked in the spaces that say ‘for police only.’”
His answer to the officer was just something to the effect of ‘I’m stupid.’
