MPD Releases Another Arrest in Ongoing Drug Crackdown

arrest devineMADISONVILLE, Ky. (9/27/13) – Over the last year, the city of Madisonville has seen a major impact on various drug-related issues in the community, via the hard work and focus of the Madisonville Police Department (MPD).
 
“The Madisonville Police Department continues to fight the illicit drug trade and fully stands with the citizenry of Madisonville/Hopkins County in this ongoing battle,” said Chief Wade Williams in a statement released today. “It is expressed that in an ongoing battle, the entire community must continue to remain strong as we make our community safer for our families and friends.”
 
Today, Friday, Sept. 27, 2013, MPD has taken another source of local illegal drug activity out of the picture with an arrest.
 
According to Chief Williams, on September 25, 2013, MPD arrested a key individual and seized a large amount of Methamphetamine. Chief Williams reported that, due to the ongoing investigations into local drug activity, not a lot of details could be released, but he did release the name of the “key” individual arrested.
 
William Dewayne Devine, 48, of 209 Poplar Street in Providence was arrested on charges of Possession of Controlled Substance (Meth), Drug Paraphernalia (Buy/Possess), Possession of Marijuana, Trafficking in a Controlled Substance greater than or equal to 2 grams (3 counts) and Trafficking in Controlled Substance less than 2 grams.
 
Chief Williams stated that this arrest, as well as other recent ones, was the result of the police department recognizing the potential threat towards the youth and adults of this community. Williams said that MPD Vice Narcotics launched an undercover operation in an attempt to identify key individuals who are responsible for the distribution of large quantities of Meth throughout Western Kentucky.
