Police: Man arrested for heroin

A Richland man was arrested late Thursday afternoon after police found him asleep inside a parked car.

Tyler Scott Fernald, 25, was booked into the Yakima County Jail for possession of a controlled substance-heroin. He was scheduled to appear in Yakima County Superior Court on Friday.

According to court records, police approaching the car parked along a public road could see a syringe cap, spoon and an aluminum can, items consistent with injecting heroin.

Police woke up Fernald, who later confirmed he had used heroin, the report said.
