12:13 AFTERNOON UPDATE: GPD arrests two on drug charges, one on terroristic threatening


A Metcalfe County man has been arrested on drug charges.

Dustin K. Jessie, 24, of Knob Lick, was arrested early Thursday morning after Glasgow police received a call that a man was passed out at a table in the bar area of Applebee's restaurant on Max Wagner Drive.

Upon making contact with Jessie, police found he was drooling on himself and was incoherent. After waking Jessie, police officers frisked him for possible weapons.

Jessie had slurred speech and would not follow simple instructions, according to a Glasgow Police Department report.

During the frisk, police found what appeared to be numerous pills in his front left coat pocket and a baggie of marijuana in his front right coat pocket. The baggie contained 65 generic Claritin-D pills with a total of 15.6 grams of Sudafed in them, the report stated.

The pills were not in an original container and exceeded the maximum amount of Sudafed that a person can have on them, the report stated.

Jessie was charged with public intoxication, possession of methamphetamine precursor, public intoxication of controlled substance (excluding alcohol) and possession of marijuana. Jessie was transported to the Barren County Detention Center.

Carla S. Pedigo, 30, of Edmonson County, was cited by Glasgow police on Wednesday for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police responded to Rite-Aid on a complaint of a shoplifter.

Upon arrival, Pedigo had left the area but police observed her pull into 300 Dawn St. The woman placed the stolen items in a toilet inside the store. Upon search of her purse, police officers found a small amount of marijuana inside her purse along with some rolling papers, according to a police report.

Danny W. Davis, 60, Glasgow, was arrested Tuesday on charges of third-degree terroristic threatening and menacing on a Barren County arrest warrant, according to a police report.

Davis posted $500 in bail, which was secured by cash. He was transported to the Barren County Detention Center. He was released from jail later that same day, according to the jail website.
