By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Friday, July 3, 2020, at 9:38pmCT, K-9 Deputy Josh Durbin was on patrol in the south end of Adair County around the Sparksville Community. Durbin, who was running radar, initiated a traffic stop on a 2000 Chevrolet for excessive speeding.

During a roadside investigation, it was found that the operator did not possess a valid KY drivers licence. It was also determined that the driver had an outstanding warrant for his arrest from Adair Circuit Court.

After taking James Adcock, 47, of Columbia, into custody, Deputy Durbin deployed his K-9 Nitro, who located methamphetamine in the vehicle.

Adcock was lodged in the Adair County Regional Jail by the Adair County Sheriff's Office on charges of:
  • 1-Possession of a controlled substance 1st degree methamphetamine
  • 2-Speeding 73 mph in 55mph
  • 3-No operators licence
  • 4-No insurance
