OXFORD — Authorities say a Standish man has been charged with heroin possession after police found him semi-conscious in his vehicle at the Oxford Casino last weekend.

Police say 32-year-old Michael Lafollette was charged with possessing illegal drugs and violating probation.

Chief Jon Tibbetts says officers responded to the casino after security reported an unresponsive person in a parked vehicle.

Tibbetts tells the Sun Journal that officers found four grams of heroin in Lafollette’s vehicle, along with drug paraphernalia.

Police didn’t know if Lafollette was heading into the casino or had already left. There was no indication that Lafollette was distributing the drug.

Lafollette remains in jail pending a court appearance. It was not known if he has a lawyer.
