Authorities say a drug tip led to the arrest of two Henderson men for allegedly selling methamphetamine.

The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office tells WMSK News that a felony stop was conducted on a vehicle driven by 29 year old Bobby Riley Saturday night around 7:00 on Bend Gate Road after the Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force received information of Riley trying to sale meth in the north end of Henderson.

During the traffic stop and investigation, authorities indicate Riley pulled into the driveway of his cousin’s house, which is located across from the Bend Gate Elementary School. Police say detectives with the Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force interviewed Riley and his passenger, 21 year old Cole Schriber, and during a pat down deputies found a set of digital scales and a pair of brass knuckles in Schriber’s pocket.

During a K-9 search of Riley’s vehicle, authorities say approximately 17-hundred dollars worth of meth was found inside the car, along with multiple items used to traffic illegal drugs, a bag of suspected marijuana, packaging material, suspected meth pipes and a large amount of cash.

Riley and Schriber were lodged in the Henderson County Detention Center for trafficking meth and marijuana, trafficking a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, and possession of drug paraphernalia. In addition, Riley was charged for tampering with physical evidence, two counts of failure to appear for child support court, and two warrants for parole violation; and, Shriber was also charged for carrying a concealed deadly weapon.
