Traffic stop leads to two arrests in Brownstown


A traffic stop led to the arrests of a Bloomington man and a Bedford woman Tuesday evening in Brownstown.

Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Officer Zach Elliott stopped a vehicle traveling east on U.S. 50 near Depot and Branch streets at 6 p.m. due to the lack of a license plate on the trailer it was hauling.

During the investigation, the driver, Robert L. Davis, 46, Bloomington, was found to not have a valid driver’s license and an arrest warrant in Lawrence County.

While searching Davis, officers reported they found methamphetamine hidden in the waistband of his jeans.

The passenger, Jessica Michelle George, 32, of Bedford, was found to have a syringe on top of her purse when she got out of the vehicle, police said.

Upon further search of the vehicle, George was found to be in possession of a syringe containing meth.

George also falsely identified herself while being questioned. Officers said George first gave a false name because she thought she had a parole warrant.

Davis was arrested on a preliminary Level 6 felony charge possession of meth, while George faces the same charge, a Level 6 felony charge of possession of a syringe and a Class A misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance.

Davis and George are being held without bond at the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown.

Brownstown Officer Ryan Cherry and county Officer Brad Barker assisted Elliott.
