A traffic-stop by Russell County Sheriff’s Deputy Dustin Bunch led to the arrest of a Russell Springs woman on drug trafficking and other charges.
Rikki Brassfield, 27, was taken into custody around 7:20 p.m. Wednesday near the intersection of U.S. 127 and Fruit of the Loom Drive in Jamestown. Brassfield was initially arrested on a warrant charging her with Hindering Prosecution & Apprehension in connection with an incident this past weekend at her residence in the Esto community.
A Search Warrant was executed on the vehicle she was driving Wednesday evening resulting in the discovery of nearly a half-ounce of “crystal methamphetamine”, some prescription pills packaged in small zip-lock bags and a small amount of Marijuana.
Brassfield was lodged in the Russell County Detention Center on several charges including Trafficking in a Controlled Substance and Hindering Prosecution & Apprehension.
Deputy Bunch was assisted by JPD Officer Jeremy England, KSP Trooper Billy Begley and KSP Trooper Levi Scott.
