A pair of domestic disturbance calls last week both turned into drug arrests for the Logan County Sheriff’s Department.

On Saturday, Jan. 23 at 1:04 a.m., the Logan County Sheriff’s Department responded to the Adairville Arms apartments on Staggers Avenue in Adairville in response to a domestic disturbance call.

Upon arrival, it was discovered that 21-year-old Ryan M. Gregory of Adairville had allegedly assaulted the mother of his two-month old baby. Gregory was later located at his residence at the Circle T Trailer park, also in Adairville.

He was arrested and charged with second degree wanton endangerment, fourth degree assault (domestic violence) and falsely reporting an incident. After arresting Gregory, deputies located suspected drug paraphernalia and methamphetamine on his person. Gregory was then charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine).

The investigating deputies were Ed Higgins, Robert Toombs and Jakop Smith.

On Jan. 19 at 6:12 p.m., Logan County Sheriff’s deputy Jarrod Lyons and Sgt. Clint Wright responded to the residence of 365 Mudd River Valley Road in reference to a domestic disturbance complaint.

Upon investigation, illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia were found at the residence. Lyon placed 22-year-old Tonya R. Wilson under arrest in connection with the drugs.

She was charged with possession of a controlled substance (cocaine), possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Wilson was then taken and lodged in the Logan County Detention Center.
