Central Library Security Guard Finds Man Shooting Up in Bathroom

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

An alert security guard at the Central Library caught a man who was allegedly trying to shoot up heroin on Wednesday.

According to officials, the guard caught Christopher Furr inside a bathroom. He allegedly used a metal beer top, a tiny ball of heroin and a needle to shoot up.

Officers said Furr is no stranger to the law.

"Basically, the security guard, got to give them the credit, was going on his rounds. He went into the bathroom and saw the gentleman's arm fall to the ground, and heard him moan. It's just a common characteristic of someone shooting up," said Officer Richard Olden of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "There's nothing we can do to keep them out of here. It's a public place. It's just something we have to stay on top of. So it's still happening. It's a problem in the downtown area."

Furr was checked out by medics and was cleared to be booked into the Nueces County Jail.
