Yakima Police have warned people for years not to give directly to panhandlers saying many aren’t actually homeless. Police say the recent death of a well known panhandler is proof. Capt. Rod Light says 56 year old Douglas Budd, a well known panhandler that worked the area of First Street and Nob Hill was found dead in his car on East Yakima Avenue Tuesday. Light says the man died of a drug overdose. He says officers found a lot of cash and drugs in the Budd’s vehicle. Officers found a 1700 dollars in cash and a half pound of heroin with a street value of more than 82 thousand dollars.

Officers were called to the scene after someone saw Budd in the car. A needle was still in his arm when he was found by officers.
