A Lansdale man wanted by county court on DUI offenses was found sleeping in a car in the West Ambler section of Whitpain Township.

Curtis Walton, 50, of the 300 block of Broad Street, Lansdale, was found asleep in his car during an investigation Dec. 23 at 2:16 a.m. by Whitpain Township Police for a report of subjects looking into cars, police said.

During a check, it was discovered that Walton had an active Montgomery County bench warrant. He was taken into custody and released to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department, police said.

According to court records, a warrant was issued by the county court against Walton on Dec. 21. He is facing DUI and careless driving offenses in Lansdale Borough. A motion to revoke or increase bail was filed by the county on Dec. 13.

Walton has two other active cases in the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas. One is a case from Lower Gwynedd Township in September on numerous DUI offenses. In that case, Walton had previously failed to appear at a preliminary hearing, and a warrant was issued and later revoked, according to court records.

In a second case, Walton is awaiting a bail hearing on an open case from Lansdale Borough on misdemeanor drug possession and DUI charges in October.
