Lewis County Drug & Firearms Charges Filed Against Knox City Man
Drug interdiction patrols by Lewis County deputies last week resulted in the arrest of a Knox City man on drug and firearms related charges.
According to Sheriff David Parrish, deputies were on patrol in La Belle March 3 when they pulled over a pickup truck with a defective headlight and taillight.
While deputies were making the traffic stop, they observed what appeared to be a drug transaction in progress nearby.
An investigation led to the arrest of 21 year old Logan Miller of Knox City.
Miller is alleged to have sold Xanax pills to a juvenile and was found in possession of a .223 caliber AR rifle and a semi-automatic handgun.
Miller was charged with three felonies - possession of methamphetamine, delivery of a controlled substance to a person under 17, possession of a weapon and possession of a controlled substance.
Charges were filed by Assistant Prosecutor Chelsea Fellinger. Judge Thomas Redington issued the warrants.
Miller is in the Lewis County Jail on $25,000 cash only bond.
