A California man who called 911 to say “The army from the ‘Matrix’ is following me” was allegedly found to be in possession of a significant amount of fentanyl and methamphetamine.
Christopher Warren Eddlemon, 31, is facing charges of possession of a controlled substance for sale and possession of lockpicks after he was arrested two days before Thanksgiving.
According to court documents, Eddlemon called 911 to report that someone had been following him since he left San Jose.
Deputies reported that Eddlemon appeared to be under the influence when he was spotted on Highway 395 near Johnson Lane. He was pulled over after a deputy witnessed him swerve and almost hit a semi.
He failed a field sobriety test and during a search in the jail, several bags of white powder believed to be fentanyl were found on his person. He also had 7.2 grams of methamphetamine.
Deputies also found $1,242 in cash and several cell phones in the Mercedes.
Eddlemon is scheduled to appear in East Fork Justice Court on Wednesday.
