AZ man who drove car to buy drug has his license suspended
A man who used a car rental company to buy heroin from a Phoenix man he believed was selling it has his driver’s license suspended.
The Phoenix Police Department announced Wednesday that William Scott Wilson Jr., 41, was charged with trafficking heroin in excess of a weight limit, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and conspiracy.
Wilson, who was driving a blue Nissan Altima, allegedly bought heroin from the 37-year-old man at the Phoenix Metro Center on April 15.
The car rental was booked on April 19 and was found abandoned near Interstate 25 in downtown Phoenix.
The passenger seat of the Altima was empty.
Deputies recovered three bags of heroin, one of which was packaged for delivery to a Phoenix address, according to the arrest report.
Wilson was also charged with felony possession of cocaine, conspiracy to distribute cocaine and felony possession with intent of delivery of cocaine.
He also is charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession with the intent to deliver methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Deputy District Attorney Matthew McQueary said Wilson is not a suspect in any other cases and was not being held at the jail.
The Phoenix Police Bureau has launched an investigation into the case.
The Arizona Attorney General’s Office said it will look into the charges and whether Wilson should be charged with more serious charges.
