COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A man was allegedly found passed out near a convenience store with more than 100 fentanyl pills overnight.

Police were called to the 7-Eleven off West Colorado and 15th Street at 1:15 Wednesday morning on reports of a man sleeping behind the wheel of a parked car.

“Officers were able to wake the male, and while doing so they observed several items of drug paraphernalia in plain view inside of the vehicle,” a CSPD lieutenant wrote on the police blotter.

After going through the vehicle, police say they found fentanyl pills, more than an ounce of meth, a loaded handgun, several hundred dollars in cash, and other assorted drug-related items.

Police say a quick check of his background showed the man having a lengthy criminal history with numerous prior felony convictions. He was arrested again Wednesday morning and taken to the El Paso County jail. He has been identified as Kyle Biereichel.
