While making sure that Auttonberry’s residence was clear, a deputy spotted “in plain view on a night stand a open brown paper containing approximately 1 gram of suspected methamphetamine.” A subsequent search of Auttonberry yielded a pill bottle containing another gram of meth.

Auttonberry surmised that a “ghost or intruders” placed the meth on him and were exiting the home through a nearby window. “Which was not accurate,” investigators noted.
