Unionville Men Facing Drug Charges After Traffic Stop

A traffic stop east of Memphis resulted in drug charges for three Unionville men. Scotland County Sheriff’s Deputy Bryan Whitney stopped a vehicle at 12:29 a.m. on Thursday, October 4th. The traffic stop occurred on Highway 136, three miles east of Memphis.

The sheriff’s deputy located in the vehicle and seized several items commonly used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

The driver and two passengers of the vehicle were arrested and taken to the Scotland County Jail. Arrested were Darin W. Thomas, 35; Orville K. Goodwin, 23; and Kolton P. Pearson, 23.

All three men have initially been charged with unlawful use of drug paraphernalia – methamphetamine and were being held on $25,000 cash only bonds. Both Pearson and Goodwin were also charged with two counts each of probation violations through the Missouri probation and parole board, which offer no bail.

The Sheriff’s Department was assisted at the scene by the Memphis Police Department, the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the North Missouri Drug Task Force.
