A Hopkins County couple was arrested on drug possession and other charges after police reportedly found them sitting in a parked vehicle in a cemetery.

Around 7:35 p.m. Tuesday, Kentucky State Police reports a trooper observed the vehicle parked at a cemetery on Walton Calvert Road about three miles north of Dawson Springs. As he approached the vehicle, he reportedly saw the passenger throwing items out of the vehicle. While speaking to the passenger, 44 year old Charles David Hayes of Dawson Springs, the trooper reported he observed items used to ingest and package controlled substances on the ground.

After further investigation, police say Hayes was found in possession of methamphetamine, a digital scale, prescription hydrocodone and alprazolam tablets.

According to state police, a series of field sobriety tests were performed and the trooper arrested the driver, 29 year old Sarah E. Hillman of Princeton, for operating a motor vehicle under the influence. Police say she was also found in possession of meth.

Hayes and Hillman were lodged at the Hopkins County Detention Center. Hillman was charged with her second DUI and possession of a controlled substance – meth. Hayes was charged for trafficking in a controlled substance – over two grams of meth, tampering with physical evidence, two other charges of possession of controlled substances, and other offenses.

KSP were assisted at the scene by the Dawson Springs Police Department.
