Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department officers arrested two people, Friday, May 13th, on methamphetamine related charges.
At approximately 6:30 p.m. ET, officers observed a vehicle pull up to a home near Beardstown on U.S. 35. Officers knew that the occupant of the home is in the nursing home and so they stopped and watched the occupants in the vehicle from a distance. After a while, the officers pulled into the driveway to check their story and one occupant fled into a building. At that time, Avery A. Mullins, 28, of Grovertown and Otis T. Young, 30, of Plymouth, were taken into custody. A wanted persons check found that both subjects were wanted on outstanding warrants in Marshall County.
During an inventory of the impounded truck, officers located pseudoephedrine blister packs, oxymorphone, a large quantity of methamphetamine, scales, pipes and other paraphernalia commonly used in the sale and use of illegal drugs. Both Mullins and Young have been charged with Dealing in Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of a Syringe, Maintaining a Common Nuisance, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of Paraphernalia.
