drug arrest meth 01 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (5/27/13) – Two Philpot residents were arrested Friday night after one allegedly fled his home when police arrived to conduct a search, according to the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities said they responded just after 5 p.m. on Friday to a report of possible meth production where they allegedly observed Candy Canary, 34, begin to move items off a table. When they asked her if anyone else was at the home, she told them her boyfriend, Harold Tague, also lived there. However, authorities said, he “fled out the back door into the woods” when authorities first arrived.

A K-9 unit was requested at the scene but was unable to track Tague’s scent. In the meantime, authorities conducted a search of the premises. They said they found several items used to make methamphetamine, including two 50 pound bangs of ammonia sulfate.

At 9 p.m., authorities received a call regarding a person walking east along Ky. Hwy. 144 in Hancock County. The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office was notified, and Hancock County authorities apprehended Tague and turned him over to Daviess County Sheriff’s Office.

Tague was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Canary was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
