Drug activity complaint in Arjay leads to trafficking arrest
From the Bell County Sheriff's Department -
At approximately 6:25pm Tuesday, February 25, 2020, Bell County Deputy Frank Foster and Chief Deputy Doug Jordan were on patrol in the Arjay community due to complaints of heavy drug activity on Arjay Hill involving a particular individual.
Deputy Foster observed a silver Malibu, driven by 41 year old Jeremiah Fleming, and turned to follow him on Highway 66. Fleming accelerated going too fast for road conditions and Deputy Foster initiated a traffic stop on Odell Asher Road. K-9 Officer Adam Southern and K-9 Chan were then requested to the scene.
Upon making contact with Fleming, the deputies observed a crushed pill powder substance in his nose. Deputy Southern’s K-9 was deployed and alerted on the vehicle. A search was conducted that revealed Fleming was in possession of a small baggie containing a crystal-like substance believed to be Methamphetamine and a separate baggie containing Hydrocodone and Xanax pills. Fleming admitted to snorting a Loracet pill prior to the traffic stop.
Charles Fleming was arrested and lodged in the Bell County Detention Center charged with careless driving, driving under the influence – 1st offense, trafficking in controlled substance – 1st degree (greater than 2 grams – Methamphetamine), and trafficking controlled substance – 1st degree, 1st offense (greater than 10 dosage units).
