At 3 p.m. in the afternoon on the 15th of February, a 9-1-1 caller told a dispatcher that a blue Hyundai Elantra “was driving all over the road”. The caller thought that the driver may be sleepy and told the dispatcher that the vehicle had turned into Nonna’s Pizza parking lot at 9602 S. Cicero Avenue in Oak Lawn.
When the police officer arrived to the scene he found a car with a license plate that matched a partial description given to the dispatcher.
The police officer approached the driver’s side of the vehicle and claims that the driver then exited the vehicle allowing the officer to see a green straw that he claimed is often used for drug use.
According to the police, the driver, Michael Damasauskas, told the officer that he may have fallen asleep after working long hours at UPS. The officer asked if Damasauskas had anything illegal in the car and he allegedly told the officer he had drugs in his pocket.
When the officer asked what kind of drugs, Damasauskas allegedly told the officer “heroin”. The police officer claims that he recovered two small baggies of white powdery substance that he believed to be heroin. The officer reported that the straw contined residue of a white powdery sugstance.
Damasauskas, a 27 year old white male, with an Oak Lawn address, was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance.
