Two Macon County women were arrested on multiple drug charges after being pulled over in a stolen vehicle last week.
According to a report filed by Deputy Jason Sells of the Macon County Sheriffs Department, their Dodge Neon was traveling in the Barefoot Road area of Macon County, and the Kentucky license plate was not registered to the vehicle.
After pulling the vehicle over, Deputy Sells learned the driver of vehicle – identified as Jessica York – had an expired drivers license. The passenger in the vehicle was identified as 38-year-old Krista Cook.
York was able to produce a title concerning the ownership of the vehicle and, after further investigation, it was discovered the car had been reported stolen out of Ohio County, Kentucky.
Deputy Josh Meador arrived on the scene to assist, and a search of the vehicle uncovered meth, .5 oz. of marijuana, rolling papers, scales, hypodermic needles, spoons and other drug paraphernalia used in the manufacture and use of narcotics.
York and Cook were both charged with manufacture/delivery/possession of meth, manufacture of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia. York was additionally charged with theft of property, license plate displayed on wrong vehicle and financial responsibility violation.
Both are scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on January 17, 2018.
