The Providence Police Department in Providence, Kentucky, says a long list of drugs was seized on Monday after an arrest at a gas station.
PPD says it was initially tipped off about a vehicle that was possibly involved in drug trafficking on West Main Street around 4:30 p.m. on Monday. Officers located the vehicle and followed it to a nearby convenience store.
Police say the passenger in the vehicle was 32-year-old Gerald Eades of Providence, and that he had meth, suboxone, and syringes on him.
After Eades was taken to jail on several drug-related charges, police say several more charges were added to the list after officers responded to his home nearby.
PPD says that after responding to Eades' home, officers found marijuana, Gabapentin pills, Quetiapine pills, more suboxone, pill bottles, and other items of paraphernalia.
Eades was booked into the Webster County Jail for the following:
- Possession of Controlled Substance 1st Degree (Methamphetamine)
- Drug Paraphernalia Buy/Possession
- Prescription Controlled Substance Not in Proper Container
- Possession of Controlled Substance 2nd Degree (Drug Unspecified)
PPD says the driver in the vehicle at the time of the arrest wasn't charged, but that he's considered a suspect in the drug activity and that charges could be forthcoming as the investigation continues.
