A Monticello man was arrested last night after a routine traffic stop in Boyle County.
About 1 a.m. this morning Deputy Tyler Morris observed a vehicle with expired tags on U.S. 127 South, according to a press release.
Morris stopped the vehicle and discovered the driver, Tracy Hurt, 43, had a warrant of arrest out of Wayne County for first-degree manufacturing methamphetamine.
In addition to the meth charge, Hurt was wanted for tampering with physical evidence, first-degree possession of meth and being a persistent felony offender.
Also, Hurt had a bench warrant out of Wayne County for non-payment of fines for charges of: engaging in organized crime, resisting arrest, persistent felony offender and possession of controlled substance.
Morris cited Hurt for an expired registration and no insurance.
Sheriff Marty Elliot said there wasn’t any meth recovered in the vehicle and Hurt was arrested on the Wayne County indictment without trouble.
He was lodged in the Boyle County Jail and Wayne County Sheriff’s Office has been informed.
