Sheriff Harrison Moss reports that on March, 28th at approximately 5:00am, the Adair County Sheriff’s Department was dispatched to a suspicious vehicle at Betty’s OK country cooking. Adair County Deputy Josh Durbin responded and located the vehicle driving down Keltner Road. Durbin conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and placed the passenger, 39 year old Freddy Burress under arrest for three outstanding warrants of arrest out of Taylor County. Once Burress was taken to the Adair County Jail, it was found that he had concealed a small bag of suspected meth in his clothes. He then attempted to destroy the bag of meth by eating and flushing it, but was unsuccessful. Buress was then charged with possession of methamphetamine, tampering with physical evidence, and promoting contraband. Deputy Durbin is the investigating officer and was assisted in by Columbia Police officer Jordan Dean, Deputy Brandon Hitch and Jail Deputy Diorian Coleman.
