Traffic Stop Results in Marijuana Bust

arrest twp 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (11/21/13) – Two Madisonville were men stopped for a traffic violation on Wednesday, Nov. 20 but arrested for different charges.

According to the Madisonville Police Department, Officers Jeff Miller and Russell Nichols noticed a vehicle on East Arch Street with expired Kentucky license plates. Upon reaching the vehicle, Miller noticed a purple Crown Royal bag in the back floor board of the backseat. After speaking with the driver, consent was given to search the vehicle.

The bag contained four plastic bags with 7.1 grams, 4.5 grams and 10.6 grams of marijuana.

A set of digital scales used to measure quantities of marijuana and empty plastic baggies were also located in the bag. The driver admitted to moving the bag under the seat, according to the report. Miller then arrested and read the driver his Miranda Rights.

Upon further investigation, the owner of the 1998 Chevy Malibu was determined to be the passenger. The license plate of the vehicle had a 2014 registration decal belonging to Thea Brown of Hopkinsville on a 1990 Grey Chevy van, which did not match the vehicle the two men were in. The passenger was also arrested and read his Miranda Rights.

Jackie Lee Beasley, 23, of Madisonville was charged with trafficking marijuana, first offense, drug paraphernalia buy/possess and tampering with physical evidence and is currently lodged in the Hopkins County Jail.

David Carter, 32, of Madisonville was charged with a Christian County warrant and theft of motor vehicle registration plate and being held on a $1,000 cash bail bond. He is currently lodged in the Hopkins County Jail.
