From The Bell County Sheriff's Department -
On Friday, August 9, 2019, approximately 12:35 pm Bell County Deputy Edward Dray, assisted by Deputy Frank Foster, was dispatched to a welfare check between mile markers two and three of Highway 221 in response to a gray motor vehicle parked on the shoulder through the duration of the morning, with driver side window cracked, and what a caller stated as the occupant "passed out."
Upon arrival, deputies located a silver 2007 Chevrolet four door and made contact with the occupant Stanley Thomas Davis of Kettle Island, Kentucky. Davis was informed of the nature of the complaint and immediately became nervous. Deputy Dray asked him to exit the vehicle resulting in Davis exhibiting even more nervous behavior.
Verbal consent to search Davis' person/property, was asked and granted. He then removed a small black magnetic plastic key box from his right front pant pocket, which contained a small clear plastic bag, containing approximately three grams of white/clear crystal substance believed to be Crystal Methamphetamine. Also revealed was a small clear plastic bag containing four tablets believed to contain Buprenorphine, and a small clear plastic bag containing a green leafy substance believed to be Marijuana.
A search of the vehicle revealed a clear glass pipe containing a white residue, believed to be Methamphetamine.
Stanley Thomas Davis was arrested, transported to the Bell County Detention Center and charged with trafficking controlled substance - 1st degree, 1st offense - greater than two grams (Methamphetamine), possession of controlled substance - 2nd degree (drug unspecified) (Buprenorphine), possession of Marijuana, and buying/possessing drug paraphernalia.
