Crothersville Man Jailed On 5 Counts Of Dealing Drugs

An investigation going on for more than a year by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department resulted in the arrest of two people in Crothersville last Wednesday on multiple drug charges.

Roger Dale McIntosh, 54, of 422 S. Armstrong Street in Crothersville, was charged with five felony counts of dealing drugs, Sheriff Michael Carothers said.

Jessica J. Tash, 25, Lexington, also was arrested at McIntosh’s home on a charge of possession of a controlled substance, Carothers said.

The Jackson County Emergency Response Team served a search warrant at McIntosh’s residence at 5:30 a.m. Wed-nesday, March 12. He was booked into the county jail in Browns-town at 6:04 a.m.

Carothers said a number of narcotics or prescription drugs were found at the residence along with $10,000 in cash.

Tash is a friend of McIntosh’s daughter and was staying at the home when police entered the home Wednesday.

“When we served the warrant, she had drugs on her at the time,” Carothers said.

Carothers said the investigation was conducted by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Narcotics Unit.

“There had been under-cover work for the past 15 months, and we finally had enough to put it all together,” he said. “We were able to obtain the warrant.”

Sheriff’s vehicles could be seen for much of the day at theMcIntosh residence as they conducted their search of the residence and vehicles.

Carothers does not expect more arrests to be made, but further drug charges could be pursued.

In an unrelated incident, sheriff’s deputies arrested McIntosh’s daughter, Morgan McIntosh of the same address, shortly after 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Mar. 11, on a warrant charging two counts of driving under the influence causing serious bodily injury.

The warrant is a result of a traffic accident last summer when a truck McIntosh was driving ran a stop sign, lost control and struck a concrete retaining wall in Dudleytown injurying two passengers.

Drugs may have played a part in that accident, authorities said.

Hmmmm…The Saga Continues

by Curt Kovener

To bring our muddled brain fade back into focus here are some more Thoughts to Ponder:

•I thought my boss was a jerk, so I quit my job and went to work for myself. My new boss is a jerk, too…but at least I respect him.

•If a mute swears, does his mother wash his hands with soap?

•If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

•Instead of talking to your plants, if you yelled at them would they still grow, only to be troubled and insecure?

•What’s another word for synonym?

•Isn’t it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do “practice” but when they bill you it is for “professional services”?

•When sign makers go on strike, is anything written on their signs?

•When you open a bag of cotton balls, is the top one meant to be thrown away?

•Where do forest rangers go to “get away from it all”?

•Why isn’t there mouse-flavored cat food?

•Why do they report power outages on TV?

•What should you do when you see an endangered animal that is eating an endangered plant?

•Is it possible to be totally partial? As evidenced by congress, yes it is.

•If a parsley farmer is sued, can they garnish his wages?

•Would a fly that loses it wings be called a walk?

•Why do they lock gas station bathrooms? Are they afraid someone will clean them?

•If the funeral procession is at night, do folks drive with their headlights off?

•If a stealth bomber crashes in a forest, will it make a sound?

•If a turtle loses his shell, is it naked or homeless?

•Why don’t sheep shrink when it rains?

•Should vegetarians eat animal crackers?

•If the cops arrest a mime, do they tell him he has the right to remain silent?

•Why do people who know the least know it the loudest?

From the comments we receive, many readers enjoy these funny ha-ha columns more than the ones I pour over trying to make serious thought provoking reading.

One of the things that made Elvis Presley successful was that he, in his own words “gave’em what they wanted and left ‘em wantin’ more”.

Mayhaps we follow the King’s philosophy. Thankyew, thankyewvurymuch.
