Tip leads to drug arrest

WESTWOOD - A Boyd County man was arrested Thursday after police received a tip a drug deal was in progress at a Westwood gas station.

Terry L. Reed, 47, was arrested on charges of third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and tampering with physical evidence. He is in the Boyd County Detention Center.

Officials with the Boyd County Sheriff’s Department said Monday the agency received a call just before 1 p.m. a drug deal was occurring at the Jane Hill Chevron in Westwood. Deputies were in the area and located two vehicles based on descriptions from the caller as they were turning onto York Street from Blackburn Avenue.

At the time of his arrest, Reed was found to be in possession of Adipex and other medications. According to police, Reed ate several pills in front of deputies before they were able to secure them.

Another individual, whose name was not released and who allegedly bought the pills from Reed, is cooperating with police. It was unclear whether that person would also face criminal charge.
