Two Hopkinsville residents were indicted by a Christian County Grand Jury Friday for manufacturing methamphetamine and several other charges.
The indictment alleges at on February 2, officers responded to a residence on West 15th Street to serve a warrant and were given consent to enter. An arrest citation says movement could be heard upstairs and 26-year old Willie Charles Trawick of Hopkinsville came downstairs.
He was reportedly wearing a handgun holster and there were several knives visible on his person so consent was gained to search his person, allegedly revealing a leather pouch containing a syringe. Trawick allegedly shoved an officer to the floor and ran, but was soon taken into custody. Another syringe was found in his pocket and police say he tried to get away again outside while in handcuffs.
Trawick’s girlfriend at the time, 38-year old Deborah Flener of Hopkinsville, was found allegedly hiding in the attic. Police obtained a search warrant and allegedly found several items used to make methamphetamine including tubing, salts, cold packs, batteries, burners and fuels.
Both were arrested and charged with manufacturing meth. Trawick was additionally charged with third-degree assault of an officer, second-degree escape, fleeing or evading police, resisting arrest and hindering apprehension.
