A Morganfield man arrested over a year ago on drug charges is back behind bars after police say drugs were found on him during a traffic stop.

Sturgis Acting Police Chief Eric McCallister tells WMSK News that around 9:45 Thursday night he conducted a traffic stop on a truck for speeding driven by 33 year old Raymond Mack. During a search of Mack and the vehicle, police reportedly found 14.7 grams of meth and various types of drug paraphernalia.

Mack was booked into the Union County Jail for trafficking methamphetamine and possession drug paraphernalia. He is being held on a 25-thousand dollar cash bond.

Chief McCallister was assisted by Union County Sheriff’s Deputies James Waller and Kyle Dame.

As reported by WMSK News on February 9, 2015, Mack was arrested by Henderson Police on February 6, 2015 after officers responded to a noise complaint and found him outside a 14th Street residence making noises. Officers determined Mack had an outstanding warrant out of Union County, and then during a search officers said they found 5.6 grams of marijuana and 1.6 grams of meth on him. He was charged for possessing meth and marijuana and public intoxication – controlled substance (excludes alcohol).
