WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A trip to the police station got worse for a man already under arrest when officers say he hid heroin in the patrol car that took him there.

Wilmington Police say they arrested Vernon Gore, 38, on three outstanding warrants after they found drugs in a room at the Travel Lodge on Market Street while responding to a call about drugs and prostitution.

After officers took Gore to Wilmington Police headquarters, they say they found a Crown Royal bag containing heroin and drug paraphernalia under the back seat of the patrol car in which he had been transported.

Gore is in the New Hanover County Jail under a $55,900 bond for felony possession of Schedule I, possession of drug paraphernalia, four misdemeanor failures to appear, and two bond surrenders.
