On Wednesday, Opp Police Officer Phillip Joyner made a traffic stop on a

vehicle driven by Jeremy Scarbrough for a traffic violation. During the traffic

stop, Officer Joyner ran Scarbrough"s drivers license through Opp dispatch

and learned that his license was suspended. Dispatchers also informed

Officer Joyner that Scarbrough had a warrant though Pike County for

Violation of Probation. Officer Joyner asked Scarbrough and his passenger,

David Drinkard, if they knew a license driver that could come take possession

of the vehicle. Neither occupant could think of anyone.

Since Officer Joyner could not leave the vehicle abandoned, he decided to

have the vehicle impounded. Prior to the impound, Officer Joyner conducted

a vehicle inventory. During the inventory, Officer Joyner located two WalMart

bags containing two (2) boxes of Equate Suphedrine which contains pseudo

ephedrine and an unopened bottle of HEET Gas Line Antifreeze. Next,

Officer Joyner located a plastic Fred’s bad containing charcoal lighter fluid,

hydrogen peroxide, and coffee filters and a third WalMart bag that contained

distilled water. All of these items are commonly used in the manufacture of

methamphetamine.

"I appreciate Officer Joyner’s work on this case. He followed policy and

protocol which led to seizing these items. The root of all narcotic trade are

the dealers and manufacturers. These guys were either manufacturers or

taking the items to the manufacturer. Either way, this dope will never hit the

streets thanks to Officer Joyner." comment DTF Agent Paul Hudson.

Both Scarbrough and Drinkard were charged with Manufacturing a

Controlled Substance 2ndand Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Bond on

each was set at $220,000. Scarbrough was also held without bond for the

Pike County VOP.
