MURRAY, KY (NEWS FIRST) -The Calloway County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Marshall County man on drug charges following a traffic stop on Saturday afternoon.

On February 17th, 2024 at 4:45pm, Deputies conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for numerous traffic violations on US Hwy 641 North near Radio Rd. The driver of the vehicle, 35-year-old James F.

While doing this, Shock nearly collided with several vehicles that were traveling in close proximity. Shock eventually pulled over and was detained. Deputies were able to locate the illegal items Shock tossed from the vehicle, which led to the seizure of over 80 Fentanyl laced pills.
