(BEDFORD) – A Mitchell man was arrested on meth charges after Bedford Police conducted an investigation at Super 8 Motel early Saturday morning.
According to Chief Terry Moore, officers were at the motel finishing up on an unrelated call when they were told about a male and female possibly involved in drug activity and staying at the motel.
“Officers went to the room and after knocking on the door they were met by a female and a male,” said Chief Moore. “The male was identified as 45-year-old Jeremy Hardin. When asked about the accusations Hardin said he had a bag of marijuana and showed the officers.”
Officers then asked for consent to search the room and were denied.
“Officers contacted the on-call Judge who issued a search warrant,” said Chief More. “Officers then located paraphernalia and methamphetamine inside the room.”
Police arrested Hardin on charges of possession of meth, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
