Dowdy, Chief Deputy Steve Wilber, and Deputy Brandon Koger assisted in the search where several items such as lithium batteries, cold packs, and three boxes of psuedoephedrine were found in the vehicle, which are used to manufacture methamphetamine.

Some information can be hot or cold, but lately we have been on a roll and will continue to work closely with the community to slow down or stop illegal drug activity in Pickett County. I would like to thank the community for all information provided to us and drug investigations will continue to be a main priority of this department."
