A Middlesboro man was arrested Friday on drug charges.

According to a news release from the Bell County Sheriff’s Office, Bell County Dispatch received a noise complaint call at a residence in the Dunlap Hollow community of Middlesboro at 3:53 p.m March 10.

Once on scene, Bell County Deputy Nick Capps made contact with Jamie Ayers, 22, of Middlesboro. Ayers was in the driver’s seat of a black 2000 Ford Explorer that was running. Capps stated that he asked Ayers if he had been playing loud music from the vehicle and Ayers stated he had been. Capps asked Ayers for his driver’s license and he responded he did not have one.

The release states that Capps asked Ayers if there was anything illegal in the vehicle. According to Capps, Ayers stated, “Yes, there are syringes and methamphetamine in the very back.”

The deputy searched a compartment in the rear passenger side quarter panel finding the items Ayers mentioned, including four “yellowish pills believed to be 10 mg hydrocodone.”

Once in custody, Ayers was charged with first-degree trafficking in controlled substance, first offense (greater than 2 grams of methamphetamine); first-degree possession of controlled substance, first offense (drug unspecified); and buying/possessing drug paraphernalia.

He was lodged in the Bell County Detention Center. Deputy Chris Barnes assisted at the scene.
