Three individuals were recently arrested and jailed in Logan County after being caught with methamphetamine.
On Monday, June 22, at 8:46 p.m., Logan County Sheriff’s Deputy Kyler Harvey conducted a traffic stop on a 1992 Chevrolet pickup truck around the 11000 block of Clarksville Road.
As the vehicle came to a stop, the driver, 40-year-old Oscar W. Boyd, Jr., of Clarksville, Tenn., fled on foot into a nearby field, but was caught after a short foot pursuit. Boyd then attempted to give Harvey someone else’s name in order to avoid going to jail on a probation violation out of Montgomery County, Tenn., according to a police report.
During the traffic stop, Harvey found a digital scale, some methamphetamine, $375 in cash and other items of drug paraphernalia.
Following the traffic stop, Boyd was arrested and charged with obstructed vision and/or windshield, second degree fleeing or evading police on foot, resisting arrest, improper registration plates, failure to maintain proper insurance, first degree trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, operating a motor vehicle on a suspended license and identity theft. He was also served a probation violation warrant and lodged in the Logan County Detention Center.
The passenger in the truck, 24-year-old Shaina L. Stephenson of Lewisburg, was also arrested. She was charged with first degree trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to notify address change to the department of transportation. She was also lodged in the Logan County Detention Center.
Harvey was assisted on the scene by Captain David Kitchens.
On Tuesday, June 17, the Logan County Sheriff’s Department received a tip that there was drug activity in a caper trailer sitting at 2359 Riggins Road in Adairville.
According to a police report, the South Central Kentucky Drug Task Force was called in along with the Kentucky Department of Probation and Parole due to the officer’s knowledge of 51-year-old Lowell McIntosh living at the residence and being on probation.
When officers went to the trailer, they found McIntosh in possession of methamphetamine and prescription pills.
McIntosh was arrested and lodged in the Logan County Detention Center on charges of first degree possession of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, third degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
