    NASHVILLE – A
    Lockesburg man was
    arrested on drug charges
    last week after a routine
    traffic stop, according to
    an investigator.
    Nashville Narcotics
    Investigator Mark Barnes
    said Logan Tyrell Arter,
    25, was arrested on Dec.
    16 during a traffic stop.
    According to Barnes, “Officer
    Christ Gates stopped
    a vehicle on Highway
    27 Bypass because he
    noticed the passenger
    was not wearing a seat
    belt [and] during the stop,
    he could smell what he
    thought was marijuana.”
    Arter was the passenger
    and his wife was the
    driver.
    “Officer Gates asked
    her [Arter’s wife] to step
    out of the vehicle” when
    he heard something
    hit the ground. Barnes
    said the plastic bottle
    contained “suspected
    methamphetamine in it.”
    Arter and his wife were
    transported to the Howard
    County Jail where jailers
    “found another small bag
    of suspected methamphetamine
    on her.” Barnes
    said that Arter “claimed it
    was his and he told her to
    hide it.”
    Arter’s charges
    include: possession of
    a controlled substance
    (methamphetamine),
    possession of a controlled
    substance (marijuana) and
    possession of drug paraphernalia.
    His bond was
    set at $10,000 by Circuit
    Judge Tom Cooper.
    Arter’s wife was released
    without charges.
