arrestedmeth 300MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. (6/3/14) — Detectives with the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department arrested a Paducah couple following a traffic stop Monday afternoon.

Detectives with the drug division conducted a traffic stop, June 2, 2014 at approximately 2:40 p.m. on a vehicle for a traffic infraction at the intersection of South 3rd and Clark Streets in Paducah.

The vehicle was found to be occupied by Harry Howard and Sarah Nichols. During the course of the stop detectives searched the vehicle and located a small quantity of Methamphetamine and MSM (a cutting agent commonly used to cut Methamphetamine) inside the vehicle.

Following the stop Sheriff Deputies conducted a search of Howard’s residence located at 5109 Benton Road and located additional items of drug paraphernalia. A subsequent investigation revealed that Howard had been selling Methamphetamine for the past approximate seven months. Howard and Nichols were lodged in the McCracken County Regional Jail.

Both Howard and Nichols were on felony parole for previous drug offenses at the time of their arrests.

Arrested - Harry N. Howard 38, of Reidland Rd. Paducah.
