Anderson faces meth charge

A Harlan man is facing multiple charges including methamphetamine possession after police allegedly found him in possession of the drug during a traffic stop.

Jackie Anderson, 56, was arrested on Saturday by Kentucky State Police Trooper Jake Spurlock.

According to the citation, Spurlock observed Anderson cross the center line on KY 987 several times and performed a traffic stop. While approaching the vehicle, Spurlock noticed Anderson appeared to be attempting to hide something between the driver’s seat and center console. Anderson allegedly appeared unreasonably nervous, and his eyes were red and glassy. Anderson did not perform satisfactorily during a field sobriety test. A search of the vehicle located a camouflage glove in the area Anderson had appeared to be hiding something. Inside the glove was a plastic bag containing suspected marijuana, a small glass pipe, a syringe and several small plastic baggies containing suspected methamphetamine.

Anderson was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, possession of marijuana, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to or improper signal, failure to wear a seat belt, no registration receipt and failure to produce insurance card.

Anderson was lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center on a $1,500 full cash bond.
