A wanted Westmoreland man was arrested in Kentucky last week on a long list of charges that occurred in Macon County in November 2021.

According to the 2021 affidavit of complaint, 33-year-old Robert Irwin, fled from a driveway where a search warrant was being conducted on Tooley Branch Rd. 

A few days later, law enforcement observed Irwin’s silver Dodge Avenger and it was discovered the tags did not match the vehicle.

A traffic stop was conducted at the residence of 2070 Siloam Church Rd. and, as the vehicle came to a rest, Mr. Irwin fled.

An inventory search of the vehicle led to the discovery of approximately 227.4 grams of methamphetamine, 3.5 grams of marijuana, 10.5 Alprazolam pills, 3 sets of digital scales, multiple clear baggies, two torch lighters, a glass pipe and two cell phones, 

It was later discovered Mr. Irwin’s driver’s license was revoked.
