Greenwood authorities say man claimed he was being chased by dinosaur

A Greenwood man who screamed that a dinosaur was chasing him told police he would show them the aliens in his apartment, but instead officers found drugs.

Police said they found multiple types of drugs, including 1,000 hits of LSD, and a makeshift lab in the apartment of a man who alarmed neighbors by running down the street in his pajamas and yelling about a dinosaur.

A hazardous materials team also had to be called to the apartment. Police believe they recovered an anesthetic used to sedate animals, hallucinogenic mushrooms, marijuana, a hallucinogen that veteran narcotics detectives had never heard of before and substances in beakers and test tubes that police couldn’t identify.

Edward A. Kirk III, 19, 803 Kings Mill Road, Apt. 113, was arrested on two charges of possession of a controlled substance and charges of maintaining a common nuisance, reckless possession of paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and disorderly conduct.
