Security at SunTrust Park has caught cocaine stowed in a cowboy boot and can now add heroin in a backpack to their list of confiscated items, according to Cobb County police.

Kevin Sinclair Ross, 32, was arrested last week after he allegedly tried to get the backpack through security ahead of the Aug. 21 Braves game against the Miami Marlins. Authorities found 11 syringes and a gram of heroin in the bag, according to an arrest warrant obtained by AJC.com.

The Decatur man is facing charges of possession of heroin, a felony, and possession of a drug-related object, a misdemeanor. He is also charged with a probation violation, jail records show.

He is being held in the Cobb County jail without bond.

The week before Ross’ arrest, a Woodstock man was accused of trying to sneak cocaine into the ballpark. He was stopped by security Aug. 14 while trying to enter for the Braves’ game against the New York Mets.

Dustin Luther Wilkes, 39, was asked to take off his cowboy boots and he complied, but he allegedly grabbed something from one of his boots and placed it in his pants pocket before handing them over. After a few attempts to hide it, Ross showed security a baggie filled with white powder, according to his arrest warrant.

Wilkes was arrested on a possession of cocaine charge. It is unclear how much of the substance he allegedly possessed.

He has since been released from jail.
