MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Two men were arrested after deputies say drugs were found in a milkshake during a traffic stop on July 5 at 11:47 p.m. in McCracken County, Kentucky.
Deputies with the McCracken County Sheriff's Department stopped a 2006 Buick Lacrosse for traffic violations at around 11:47 p.m.
Jeremiah Ripley, 27, of Paducah, was charged with careless driving, license to be in possession, trafficking in a controlled substance first-degree, first-offense (greater than or equal to two grams of methamphetamine).
Robers Sams, 28, of Fancy Farm, was charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, first-degree, first-offense (greater than or equal to two grams of methamphetamine), drug paraphernalia. He also had two warrants for failing to comply with drug court from a previous drug charge.
According to deputies, Ripley was driving and Sams was a passenger in the vehicle. They learned Sams had two outstanding warrants for his arrest and further investigation led to a search of the vehicle.
That's when deputies say they found 16.5 grams of methamphetamine concealed in a milkshake.
They seized it along with digital scales, a syringe containing a liquid substance, and $822 in US currency believed to be proceeds from illegal drug sales.
Ripley and Sams were arrested and taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail.
