ROANOKE RAPIDS, N.C. (WNCN) — A man has been arrested after snorting narcotics behind the Roanoke Rapids library, according to deputies with the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.

A deputy said he was near the library on Sunday when he noticed a silver Ford Taurus with a Virginia registration parked behind the building.

He said 34-year-old Lawrence Brandon Woodard, of Broadnax, Virginia, was sitting in the driver’s seat with the door wide open.

Woodard was holding a cut straw, a type of device used to snort narcotics, according to the sheriff’s office.
