The Breckenridge Police Department and the Stephens County Sheriff's Office combined to make hauls in recent drug arrests, while also arresting a local male following a neighborhood altercation.
Tuesday night, BPD officer Noah Gray, Sgt. Jeff Baker and deputy James Elliott were dispatched to 201 Pembrook following a domestic altercation.
Christina Nichols reported that her boyfriend, Richard New, had taken a gun outside.
After returning home from a trip, Nichols said she heard a gunshot.
Upon her return to her home, Nichols said New began screaming at her and that if officers were called, he was not going to listen to them.
Upon the arrival of the officers, according to Nichols, New still had the weapon, a Ruger P89 9mm pistol, in his possession.
Baker tazed New and had him in custody, where he was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
The weapon was later found in the back of a white Dodge pickup on the scene.
New was transported to the Stephens County Law Enforcement Center.
Earlier Tuesday, Baker executed a traffic stop in the 800 block of W. Jeannette.
Four individuals, Naomi Ruth Roysdon, Levi James Roysdon, Edward Clifton Lindsey, Kristi Jonann Craven and Beadley Heath Chapin were occupants of the vehicle.
Baker reported that Lindsey admitted to having marijuana and a pipe in his pocket.
Also during the vehicle search, a tool kit containing a small amount of marijuana was found belonging to Chapin and Levi Roysdon.
While the search continued, Baker found a broken light bulb containing methamphetamine believed to belong to Craven.
SO deputy Elliott assisted with the arrests, transporting Craven to the Stephens County Law Enforcement Center.
BPD officer Gray assisted with the arrests by transporting Chapin and Levi Roysdon to the SCLEC, while Baker transported Lindsey to the jail.
Lindsey, Chapin and Levi Roysdon were each charged with possession of marijuana, while Craven was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
Friday night, Stephens County Sheriff's deputies arrested Lecia Taylor for possession of a controlled substance and driving while her license was invalid.
