Three arrested for meth in Clarksville, fourth suspect wanted

Stolen vehicle gets stuck on median, portable meth lab discovered

Three people were arrested after a car that had been reported stolen got stuck and Clarksville Police Department officers discovered a portable methamphetamine lab inside the vehicle.

At approximately 4:20 p.m. on Monday, Clarksville Police Department officers observed a 1996 Ford Aspire pull out of the Speedway on Lewis and Clark Parkway and attempt to make a left turn. The vehicle got stuck on the concrete median, a Clarksville Police Department report states.

As officers pulled up to the vehicle, four men exited and appeared like they were going to run, according to the police report. The men all stopped when officers activated emergency lights and approached the vehicle.

After making eye contact with an officer, the driver of the vehicle, 24-year-old Christopher R. Bailey, took off running and officers followed on foot pursuit. While searching for Bailey, officers found 26-year-old Michael S. Haas and 25-year-old Adam C. Woodward, both passengers in the vehicle, inside Speedway. They were arrested.

Bailey, of the 2700 block of Paoli Pike in New Albany, was later found inside nearby Carillas Boutique and was arrested, while the fourth suspect got away.

Inside the vehicle, police found a dufffel bag with ingredients to manufacture methamphetamine, the report states. A red powder and white powder substance were also found with the materials.

Police also learned that the vehicle had been reported stolen.

Bailey was preliminarily charged with manufacturing meth, auto theft, driving while suspended and resisting law enforcement.

Haas, of the 2400 block of Edwardsville-Galena Road in Georgetown, and Woodward, of Mauckport, were preliminarily charged with manufacturing meth and resisting law enforcement.

All three appeared in Clark County Superior Court No. 2 on Wednesday for a reading of rights. They remain in the Michael L. Becher Adult Corrections Complex. The prosecutor’s office has not yet filed formal charges.
