A 51-year-old Ocala man found himself behind bars Sunday afternoon after admitting to attempting to inject himself with drugs.
A Marion County sheriff’s deputy was called to a residence on N.E. 25th Avenue, where he made contact with David Jean Mirsky. Someone at the residence who wasn’t identified in the sheriff’s office report about the incident told the deputy that Mirsky had attempted to take MDMA and then burn the evidence, a report states.
A spoon containing the MDMA was given to the deputy. Mirsky admitted to attempting to use the drug and also provided other paraphernalia from his attempt, the report says.
Mirsky was taken into custody and transported to the Marion County Jail, where he was charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was being held on $1,500 bond and is due in court Dec. 8 at 9 a.m., jail records show.
