Five people were arrested in the Germantown area Monday after Mason County Sheriff Patrick Boggs followed up on a tip to his office.
The sheriff said his office received a call concerning alleged drug activity at a home on Tangletown Road. The caller said methamphetamine was being manufactured at the house, Boggs said. He responded to the address with his deputies, also acting on information that a fugitive was living there, Boggs said.
When law enforcement pulled up in their cruisers at the scene, several people ran from the residence, including one who jumped out a window of the mobile home, Boggs said. After rounding up the suspects, deputies secured the residence and applied for a warrant to search the residence. During that search, deputies discovered a woman hiding in a bedroom under a bed, he said. That woman has been identified as Amie Wilson, 26, of Brooksville. She was lodged in the Mason County Detention Center under a $12,000 bond and charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance methamphetamine, two counts of buy or possess drug paraphernalia, cultivating marijuana, first-degree wanton endangerment and nonpayment of fines.
Others facing charges include Johnathan Reed, 33, of Maysville, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance methamphetamine, being held in MCDC under a $5,000 bond; Bradley Stitt, 34, of May’s Lick, trafficking in marijuana, buy or possess drug paraphernalia, being held in MCDC under a $5,000 bond; Jimmy Dodson, 39, of Sardis, being held on warrant for two counts of contempt of court along with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance methamphetamine, being held in MCDC under a $5,000 bond; and Joshua Riley, 27, of Maysville, two counts first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance methamphetamine, buy or possess drug paraphernalia, cultivating marijuana, second-degree fleeing or evading police, endangering the welfare of a minor; trafficking in marijuana; and first-degree robbery. He is also being held at MCDC under a $5,000 bond.
Boggs said there may be more charges added to some of the suspects and that some charges may be amended.
“It was a long day but it got a lot of drugs off the street,” Boggs said.
