A Glasgow man has been charged with possessing anhydrous ammonia, a substance used in making meth.

Thomas W. Houchens of 605 Bryan St., Glasgow, was arrested by officers of the Glasgow Police Department after a tank was found in a yard on Humble Avenue.

Police said a call was received from a resident at 116 Humble Ave. that a tank had been left in her yard. Upon arrival, police found a blue tank and black hose that had a strong odor, police said.

Officers were given a description of a man that was seen nearby. The man was described as 5-foot-9, heavy-set and wearing a white shirt and jeans.

A short time later police received a complaint at 609 East Main St.

When officers arrived, a man fitting that description was there.

The man, later identified as Houchens, began screaming and fighting police, according to reports.

Houchens was lodged in the Barren County Jail on charges of possessing anhydrous ammonia, possession of drug paraphernalia, terroristic threatening, public intoxication, intimidating a witness (two counts), disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

– Domestic dispute leads to arrests

Two people were lodged in the Barren County Jail following a domestic argument over the weekend.

Barren County sheriff’s deputies responded to a complaint at 12405 Roseville Road early Saturday.

Upon arrival, deputies Steve Runyon and Matt Mutter found 40-year-old Jackie N. Grider and his girlfriend, Martha Ford, 33, involved in an argument.

When officers told Grider that he was under arrest, he reportedly shoved Mutter and ran out of the house.

A foot chase ensued and Grider was apprehended a short time later in a field behind the residence.

Grider was charged with assault in the fourth degree, escape in the second degree due to being a convicted felon, fleeing custody, fleeing police in the first degree and resisting arrest.

Ford was also charged with assault in the fourth degree.
