Possible drug activity complaint leads to arrest of London man

LONDON, KY — On Saturday, April 2nd, London Police received a complaint about possible drug activity in the parking lot of Spur Oil located on East 4th Street.

Through investigation, Joshua Morgan, 27, of Falls Street in London was arrested. Officer Jacob Bormann responded to the call and made contact with Morgan who was sitting in the driver’s seat of a vehicle.

Ofc. Bormann noticed empty baggies in Morgan’s lap, which he appeared to be attempting to conceal while acting nervous and fidgety. Morgan was then asked to step outside of his vehicle and subsequently two clear plastic baggies containing a white crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine fell to the ground.

Ofc. Bormann then placed Morgan in handcuffs and searched him further, discovering marijuana in Morgan’s right front pocket. Morgan admitted to using methamphetamine earlier in the day.

Morgan was arrested and charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) of the first offense, possession of marijuana, and public intoxication of a controlled substance excluding alcohol.
