Madison Police on patrol arrested three adults for drug possession and other charges in two unrelated traffic stops recently.

On Friday, Patrolman Cameron Blankenship observed a silver Toyota being driven by Breonna M. Youngblood 29, Madison. Knowing from prior contacts that Youngblood does not possess a valid operator’s license, Blankenship executed a traffic stop on Crescent Street.

During that stop and a subsequent search of Youngblood’s vehicle, Youngblood was cited for possession of marijuana and driving without a license (never issued). A passenger, Scott D. Paul 30, Lawrenceburg, was found to be in possession of methamphetamine and paraphernalia associated with the use of the drug and was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, possession of a syringe, possession of paraphernalia and criminal trespassing.

On Monday, Madison Police received a report of a reckless driver in a white, full-sized Ford pickup traveling south on Michigan Hill. Chief John Wallace observed the truck traveling southbound on West Street and executed a traffic stop in the 100 block of E. Second Street after observing erratic driving.

As result of the traffic stop and subsequent search of the vehicle, a crystal type substance was located in the console of the pickup. The substance field tested positive as methamphetamine.

Chad T. Hester 40, Madison, Indiana, was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and lodged in the Jefferson County Jail.

Wallace was assisted in the arrest by Det. Kyle Cutshaw, Patrolman Trent Smith, Capt. Bruce Heaton and Jefferson County Sheriff’s Det. Yancy Denning.
