Misdemeanor arrest turns into felony

A prescription bottle found containing 13 baggies of crack cocaine that appeared to be packaged for sale led to additional charges for a Gray man who was previously charged with a misdemeanor. 

The name on the label on the prescription bottle was Briton Duncan, who was the same man who had been reported as a suspicious person Feb. 27. 

Gray Police Investigator Maj. Chris Williams said Officer Thomas Watkins noticed Duncan walking in front of A-1 Title Pawn, and because of the recent burglaries in the area, he approached him and asked where he was headed.
