Beachwood Police issued a statement on Wednesday announcing the arrest of Andrew Stanowksi who was indeed sleeping in a vehicle in the CVS parking lot on Atlantic City Boulevard on July 11.

When officers approached his vehicle to check on his well-being, that checked out.

When they investigated his background, the officers learned that Stanowski had multiple warrants out for his arrest in Monmouth County.

Stanowski was very forthcoming with Beachwood Police that day as well, telling them there may be CDS in his vehicle and indeed there was as K-9 Ace took a sniff and then helped officers in discovering 8 bags of Heroin and 2 Hypodermic Needles.

Stanowski was then arrested, processed and charged with possession of heroin and possession of a hypodermic needle.

He was released to the custody of Howell Police for an outstanding warrant and from there was transported to the Monmouth County Correctional Institution.
