A Madison County Detention Center deputy jailer arrested a man for first-degree controlled substance trafficking (methamphetamine), first-degree controlled substance possession (methamphetamine) and first-degree promoting contraband after conducting an unclothed search at the jail Wednesday.
During the search, Tony Pearson, 54, Old Ky. 52, Richmond, stated he had something in his jacket, according to a citation.
The deputy jailer then found a clear baggie containing a substantial amount of a crystal-like substance suspected to be methamphetamine, the citation states. The deputy turned over the substance to a lieutenant, and Pearson was arrested.
Pearson told the deputy jailer the substance was indeed methamphetamine, according to the citation. He was also arrested on a probation violation.
