Madisonville police say they've made progress in the effort to save lives by getting the dangerous drug fentanyl off the streets.
Police arrested 22-year-old Jyreke Stum after they say he tried to run from officers during an attempted traffic stop on Thursday near Lake Avenue and Madison Avenue in Madisonville.
Police had to use a taser to get Stum into custody.
Officers say they recovered about 200 fentanyl pills that police say he tried to hide under his car during the scuffle.
Stum faces six charges, the most serious are trafficking of fentanyl and marijuana, resisting arrest, and tampering with evidence.
Stum remains in the Hopkins County Jail on a $20,000 bond.
