Evidence will be allowed

TOMPKINSVILLE —

At least for now, evidence gathered from a vehicle during two drug-related arrests will be allowed in a trial for John William Smith on Tuesday in Monroe County.

Smith and co-defendant Timmy W. Curtis were arrested on Jan. 4, 2012, after law enforcement agencies responded to an anonymous tip that the two were in a black GMC truck parked outside the basement of Curtis’ mother’s home producing methamphetamine.
