A McCracken County man was arrested on various drug charges early Tuesday morning near South 28th and Miller streets.

Officer Will Gilbert reported he saw a man and woman acting suspiciously, walking on South 28th Street, so he stopped to check on them. Gilbert said he and another officer were talking and he saw the man, Brandon Barnes, 32, drop something and step on it.

Gilbert said he found a pipe commonly used to smoke methamphetamine on the ground under Barnes’ foot. A search of Barnes’ person revealed .8 grams of suspected methamphetamine and 40.4 grams of suspected marijuana.

Barnes was arrested on charges of first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and tampering with physical evidence and booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.
