Three people were arrested Friday by Glasgow police on drug and weapon charges following a traffic stop along North Lewis Street.

Glasgow Police Officer Tim Maniere made the traffic stop and spoke to Jason William Bothe, 47, of Rocky Hill, who confirmed that his operator's license had been suspended. A search of the vehicle revealed a handgun in the center console of the vehicle, methamphetamine and marijuana, said a Glasgow Police Department press release.

Both was charged with operating on a suspended or revoked operator's license, possession of marijuana, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (second offense, drug unspecified), first-degree promoting contraband, tampering with physical evidence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, the press release said.

After arriving at the Barren County Detention Center, police officers recovered additional baggies of methamphetamine that Bothe had inside his mouth, the press release said.

Bothe is being held at the jail in lieu of a $10,000 cash bond, according to the jail website.

Charlene G. Graves, 50 of Glasgow, was also arrested. She was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (first offense, drug unspecified) and possession of firearm by a convicted felon, the press release said.

She has since been released from jail. A $2,500 surety bond is pending, according to the jail website.

Bonnie H. Moore, 63, also of Glasgow, was arrested and charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance (second offense, methamphetamine) and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, the press release said.

Moore is being held in lieu of a $2,500 approved surety bond, which is pending, according to the jail website.

Maniere was assisted by Officer Guy Turcotte, the press release said.
