MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- A man who was found passed out holding a partially eaten honey bun in a convenience store parking lot Wednesday morning was later charged with possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records.

Adam Francis Cook, 24, of 124 Kodiak Drive, Martinsburg, told police he purchased the snack and an energy drink to stay awake through the night while working on a vehicle, according to court records.

At 7:37 a.m., Cook was found in a blue Ford Mustang at the 7-Eleven at 5677 Winchester Ave., and Berkeley County Sheriff's Department Deputy C.S. Welcome said in a complaint filed with the court that a white powdery substance appeared to be on the left side of Cook's nose when he arrived to investigate.

The deputy also spotted a prescription bottle lying on the passenger side floor and later determined that the drug listed on the label was prescribed for another person, according to court records.
