37-year-old Billy Lee was charged with possession of heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana after he was caught fleeing from a residence and was found to have a spoon, a needle, and various baggies containing illegal substances on his person.
On November 7th, Stewart County Sheriff’s Deputy Patrick Weber responded to reports of underage drinking. The deputy was also informed of two people at the residence with active warrants. When Deputy Weber arrived, he went towards the back door. Billy Lee fled into the back yard until the deputy made contact with him. Billy was found to have active warrants out of Montgomery County.
During a search of his person, a hypodermic needle, a bag of a green leafy substance, and a clear plastic bag that was positively identified as methamphetamine were located. The deputy also located a small bag with heroin inside of it and a spoon in Billy’s pocket that looked as though it was used for drugs.
Billy Lee was arrested and charged with possession of heroin with intent, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, fugitive from justice, and other-county charge. His bond was set at $9,000, his charges in Stewart County were furloughed, and he was later transferred to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department. His charges in Montgomery County were later dismissed.
