McKinneyMADISONVILLE, Ky. (2/8/18) — City police reported finding about 300 grams of methamphetamine combined with a cutting agent in a local motel room off Hanson Road Wednesday morning.

Madisonville Police Department Officer Joey Keelin reported going to the location to serve a warrant at 8:18 a.m. He came in contact with Johnney C. McKinney, 23, who had his hands up, saying he was “on the run.”

The officer detained McKinney, finding a small plastic baggie with a substance believed to be meth in his possession, according to the report. The man told Keelin that “he ate approximately 10 grams of methamphetamine,” when the officer walked in the room.

Keelin reported seeing a syringe in the bathroom and other items typically used to ingest meth. MPD obtained a search warrant, finding several Schedule IV pills in addition to loaded and unused syringes, a used smoking pipe, digital scale and approximately 300 grams of meth combined with a cutting agent.

McKinney was charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (meth/more than 2 grams), tampering with physical evidence, third-degree possession of a controlled substance, illegal possession of legend drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and meth. He was also served a warrant on failure to appear in court.

He was listed as being held in Hopkins County Jail this evening on $7,500 cash bond.
