Traffic stop leads to arrest
A Sharp County man was arrested after methamphetamine was found in a vehicle he was driving.
According to a report from the Cave City Police Department, Cave City Corporal Quinton Maag initiated a traffic stop Aug. 25 on a vehicle being driven by Kevin Morrow.
Morrow had failed to signal as he turned onto Highway 167.
Upon making contact with the vehicle, Mag found Morrow to be the driver, a female passenger Katherine Neer, as well as a third passenger Alexis Murray.
After running the individuals through dispatch and ensuring there were no warrants, Maag returned to the vehicle and pulled Morrow out due to his behavior.
Maag asked if there was anything illegal in the vehicle to which Morrow stated there was not. Maag asked if he could look inside the vehicle, but Morrow said he did not want it searched and that he had never lied to the police before.
At this time, Maag requested a K-9 officer to come to the vehicle. He then pulled the female passengers from the vehicle to explain what was going to happen.
When the K-9 unit arrived, Rogue, the K-9 showed interest near the driverís seat of the vehicle.
Neer explained the vehicle was hers and the officers could search inside if they wanted.
During the search, a small clear baggy with what was determined to be methamphetamine was discovered.
In speaking with the women, Maag was told they had just picked Morrow up and he was taking them to Mountain View. They also stated they could pass a drug test if one were presented.
Morrow said the methamphetamine wasnít his, but he could not pass a drug test because of resent usage of the controlled substance.
Morrow was placed under arrest for possession of controlled substance Schedule I or II and was transported to the Sharp County Jail.
