A Paducah man and woman were arrested Monday on drug-related charges.
Police pulled Harry N. Howard, 38, and Sarah Nichols, 40, over around 2:40 p.m. at South Third and Clark streets.
Detectives with the McCracken County Sheriff's Department searched the vehicle and found methamphetamine and MSM, an agent commonly used to cut the drug, Detective Sgt. Jesse Riddle said in a news release.
Detectives learned that Nichols had hidden illegal drugs in her crotch area just before the stop. A pill bottle containing meth and the painkillers hydrocodone and Tramadol were later recovered from Nichols, Riddle said.
Detectives searched Howard and seized $3,145, suspected to be proceeds from drug sales. They then searched Howard's residence on Benton Road and found additional drug paraphernalia.
Howard and Nichols were jailed.
Howard is charged with trafficking in meth, second offense, possession of hydrocodone, possession of Tramadol and possession of drug paraphernalia. Nichols was charged with possession of meth, hydrocodone and Tramadol. Both were on felony parole for drug convictions.
