Comments Off on Ozark County motorcycle accident leads to discovery of ‘pure’ Methamphetamine

Monday night started out bad for one Ozark County resident, and things just got worse from there. A motorcycle accident led to a man fleeing from officers and a drug bust of pure crystal meth, sheriff Darrin Reed said.

Ozark County deputies Tiffany Neill and Cecilia Clayton responded to the scene of a motorcycle accident on J Highway at 11:35 p.m. March 30 and found the driver uninjured but acting strange.551d467608935_image

“His speech was slurred, and he was just acting weird,” Reed said.

The officers asked the man if he had anything to drink that night, and he reportedly told them he had a few drinks a couple hours before. The officers continued to question the man, and during the middle of the conversation the man drove off, Reed said. Neill and Clayton were able to stop the subject and restrain him a short time later. The officers searched him and reportedly found bullets in his pocket and the package of methamphetamine. He was arrested and transported to the Ozark County Jail.

“I’m really proud of these two deputies,” Reed said Tuesday. “They were able to pull another drug dealer off the streets and make our county a little safer.”

Reed says he expects charges to be filed sometime this week.
