A Barbourville man was arrested this week in London. After learning about an outstanding bench warrant, police arrested 29-year-old Christopher Scott. Officials also found prescription pills that were not in a proper container, a clear baggie with suspected meth residue, and five syringes. Scott was charged with possession of a controlled substance, prescription controlled substances not in a proper container and possession of drug paraphernalia. Scott was also charged on a Knox District Court bench warrant for failure to appear on charges of operating on a suspended or revoked driver’s license and numerous other violations. He was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
