On Tuesday, Harlan County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested two male subjects on drug trafficking charges after a traffic stop in Eastbrook. Deputies observed an individual that had an active indictment warrant operating the vehicle.

Through further investigation, a large quantity of methamphetamine was located in the vehicle. Methamphetamine and digital scales were also discovered on a passenger.

He was also served with a Harlan County Circuit Court indictment, charging him with two counts first-degree possession of controlled substance (drug unspecified), first-degree possession of controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
