Staff report

The Logan County Sheriff's Department arrested two individuals on Sunday, Jan. 13, on a variety of drug charges and other warrants.

Deputy Jason Brent initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle that was failing to maintain its lane, riding on or over the fog line and careless driving, according to a police report.

Upon contact, the driver, 39-year-old Renae Murrell of Bowling Green, provided a Kentucky identification card. A check through NCIC determined that Murrell had five warrants out for her arrest out of Warren County and that she was driving on a suspended license.

Murrell was arrested on the warrants and a search of her purse found a glass smoking pipe with a residue that Murrell identified as methamphetamine, according to the report. Murrell's passenger, 39-year-old Marrion Carnell, also of Bowling Green, was asked to leave the vehicle and consented to a patdown. Sgt. Robert Toombs observed a pill bottle in Carnell's right coat pocket that contained six individually wrapped bags of crack cocaine. Also, 15 bags of individually wrapped methamphetamine were found in Carnell's pants pocket. The total weight of the methamphetamine was 4.3 grams and the weight of the crack cocaine was 3.4 grams.

According to the report, Carnell claimed ownership of the illegal narcotics.
