A Webster County man has been charged with traffic and drug-related offenses after a traffic stop.

Around 9:45 Thursday night, Kentucky State Police reports 47 year old Randy L. Travis of Providence was observed by a trooper driving a Ford truck on West Elm Street in Clay with no tail lights and making a turn without using a signal.

During the traffic stop, the trooper determined the Providence man was under the influence of a controlled substance and reportedly found two prescription pills and rolling papers on Travis during a search. During a search of the truck, police say the trooper found a plastic bag containing suspected methamphetamine. Authorities indicate he was also driving on a suspended operator’s license.

Travis was lodged in the Webster County Detention Center for DUI, possessing a controlled substance – methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia and traffic-related offenses.
