Chief Gary W. Perkins stated that on July 25, Captain Anthony Lay was working drug interdiction on Broad Street, Kentucky Street and North Main Street when a traffic stop concluded with the discovery of meth, marijuana and a firearm. Two were arrested.

Lay conducted a traffic stop in an alleyway off Fourth Street that runs parallel to Broad Street when a white male with a pinkish colored shirt exited a vehicle and quickly walked into a residence with a surrounding gate. Lay stated that the driver of the vehicle was blocking the alleyway and they were facing the First Volunteer Bank acting suspiciously.
