The Adair County Sheriff’s office responded a call of a suspicious vehicle at Betty’s OK County Cooking late Wednesday evening.
Deputy Josh Durbin responded to the call and located the vehicle driving on Keltner Road where a traffic stop was initiated.
As a result of the stop a passenger in the vehicle, 39-year-old Freddy Burress of Taylor County, was arrested for three outstanding warrants of arrest out of Taylor County.
Once Burress was taken to the Adair County Regional Jail, it was found that Burress had concealed a small bag of methamphetamine in his clothes and then Burress attempted to eat and flush the bag but was unsuccessful.
As a result, Burress was charged with possession of methamphetamine, tampering with physical evidence, and promoting contraband.
Deputy Durbin is in charge of the investigation and was assisted by Columbia Police Officer Jordan Dean, Deputy Brandon Hitch, and Jail Deputy Diorian Coleman.
