SCOTT sHELBYPADUCAH, KY (3/8/12) – The McCracken County Sheriff's Department arrested a Metropolis Man and charged a Paducah woman with drug offenses yesterday afternoon in McCracken County after they were observed acting suspiciously at a local pharmacy.
 
On Wednesday, March 7, 2012, at approximately 2:53 pm, a plain-clothes McCracken County Sheriff's Detective observed Scott Shelby 42, of Metropolis, IL making a Sudafed purchase at a local pharmacy located at 521 Lone Oak in McCracken County. The detective believed that Shelby might possibly be under the influence of Methamphetamine. Shelby was observed leaving the pharmacy and driving on I-24 toward Illinois. Detectives followed Shelby and conducted a traffic stop on his vehicle at the two-mile marker on I-24. During a search of Shelby's vehicle detectives located a glass methamphetamine smoking pipe, a syringe, one unopened box of Sudafed, additional blister packs of Sudafed, a small quantity of methamphetamine and a small quantity of Marijuana. Shelby was arrested on the scene.
 
A subsequent investigation revealed that Shelby had purchased Sudafed 107 times in the past approximate two years and had been blocked from purchasing Sudafed on 100 occasions in Kentucky and Illinois for attempting to buy more than is allowed by state law in a 30 day period. Detectives learned that Shelby had purchased Sudafed in McCracken County on more than ten occasions and then had taken the Sudafed to another individual in Illinois who would make the Methamphetamine. Shelby would receive $40-$50 for each box of Sudafed that he purchased or a quantity of Methamphetamine.
 
In a separate incident, a plain-clothes detective with the Sheriff's department at the same pharmacy, observed several individuals in a 1988 Dodge Ram Charger acting suspiciously. The detective overheard the individuals in the vehicle talking about being under the influence. The vehicle was stopped a short time later near the intersection of Jackson and South 25th Streets at approximately 6:16 pm. During the stop, deputies identified the driver of the vehicle as Jessica Myers. Myers was found to have a bag of marijuana and a bag containing several doses of Vyvanse in her possession, which she did not have a prescription for.
Vyvanse is controlled substance used to treat ADHD.
 
Shelby was lodged in the McCracken County Jail. Meyers was cited to court on will appear in McCracken County District Court on 04/26/2012.
