Charlestown man arrested during traffic stop


CHARLESTOWN — Clarksville PD makes arrest on needle possession

Clarksville police arrested a woman last week after finding her in possession of a hypodermic needle.

The officer reported he went to America’s Best Inn on Eastern Boulevard Feb. 3 after receiving information that Mary Kathryn Harris, 22, of Fairdale, Ky., was using heroin and soliciting prostitution at area motels.

Harris was found by the officer in a room of the motel with a man she knew visiting another room.

She told the officer she was staying at nearby Motel 6.

The officer asked Harris if there were any items in her room that didn’t belong.

“ ... she advised me that she did in fact have a heroin syringe over there and showed me fresh track marks on her left and right arm,” the officer wrote in the report.

Harris and the officer then went to the room listed under her name in Motel 6 where she produced a used syringe from behind a television set.

Harris was charged with unlawful possession of a syringe, a class D felony, in Clark County Circuit Court No. 2 Feb. 5.

A $10,000 court-cash bond was set and a not guilty plea was entered on her behalf.

A pretrial conference is scheduled for March 11.
