Three arrested on drug charges

By Chris Cooper -

Three individuals were arrested last week during routine traffic stops by the Logan County Sheriff’s Department. One was charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon that had been reported stolen.

According to reports, deputy Jarrod Lyons of the LCSD, initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle on West 9th Street in Russellville at the entrance of the Maple Grove Apartments on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015. Russellville’s canine Jaxx was dispatched, and while investigating, exhibited a positive alert on the suspect’s vehicle. This provided deputies probable cause to search the vehicle for illegal drugs.

Suspected illegal drugs were located and recovered from the driver, 22-year-old Tyrez D. Harris of 114 Dixie Street in Guthrie. Harris was taken into custody and lodged in the Logan County Detention Center. He is being charged with possession of a controlled substance 1st degree (opiates).

Deputy Lyons was assisted at the scene by fellow deputy Kyler Harvey, and police officers Chris Bellar and JAXX from the RPD, as well as troopers Joe Gregory and Briston Smith of the Kentucky State Police Department.

Another incident occurred on Friday, Nov. 13, which resulted in two arrests.

According to reports, deputy Kyler Harvey of the LCSD initiated a traffic strop on a vehicle on U.S. 68 East near Logan County High School. During an investigation Harvey located items of marijuana, prescription medication and a .45 caliber handgun that had been reported stolen from Mayfield, Ky.

Arrested were Micheal L. Lipson, 25, of 109 West Green Street in Princeton, along with William L. Brown, 27, of 4813 Old Mayfield Road Lot 8 of Paducah, Ky. They were both lodged in the Logan County Detention Center.

Lipson was charged with careless driving, improper equipment, operating on a suspended or revoked operator license, failure to surrender revoked operator license, possessing license when privileges are revoked, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, receiving stolen property (firearm), and possession of a controlled substance 3rd degree (drug unspecified).

Brown, who was the passenger, is being held on an outstanding warrant out of McCracken County District Court, along with charges of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Deputy Harvey was assisted at the scene by fellow deputies Sgt. Robert Toombs and Sgt. Clint Wright.
