Fugitive from justice resists arrest; found with meth

49-year-old James Robertson was charged with possession of methamphetamine, fugitive from justice, and resisting arrest after a deputy came to serve him a warrant and found a plastic baggie containing methamphetamine in his pocket.

On October 12th, Stewart County Sheriff’s Deputy Page attempted to serve an arrest warrant for 2nd-degree burglary out of Calloway County, Kentucky, to James Robertson, at 462 Indian Mound Road. Upon arrival, Deputy Page noticed the door was unlocked, entered the camper, and spoke with James. He was told to reveal his hands and get on the ground, but refused to comply and instead tried to tuck something in the chair he was seated in.

Deputy Page grabbed the cigarette pack he attempted to hide and opened it, revealing a translucent bag with a crystal-like substance later identified as Methamphetamine. When James was searched, officers located a part of a pen he had used to inhale narcotics through.
