Russellville pair arrested on gun, drug charges

An investigation on US 68 in Logan County Thursday evening led to the arrests of two people on drug and gun charges.

Logan County Sheriff’s Deputy Kyler Harvey saw a vehicle with its hood up parked in the emergency lane near C. Dodson Lane and he stopped to see if he could assist.

A news release says there was an odor of marijuana coming from the car and a search allegedly revealed marijuana, prescription pills and a loaded handgun underneath clothes in the floorboard of the vehicle.

Twenty-five year old Lorine Latrish Posey of Russellville was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, prescription pills not in the proper container and carrying a concealed deadly weapon.
