Pair of Bowling Green men found in possession of three dozen grams of meth

In a joint operation between Kentucky State Police and the Bowling Green Warren County Drug Task Force, 37-year-old Christopher Pearson and 43-year-old David Manley are both charged with trafficking in a controlled substance and tampering with physical evidence; both are felony charges.

Authorities say both Pearson and Manley were observed in a drug transaction in a hotel parking lot on Cumberland Trace Road.

Authorities say they found Pearson in possession of 16-grams of suspected crystal meth, digital scales, and nearly a thousand dollars.

Following a search of Manley’s vehicle, authorities say a police K-9 discovered 28-grams of crystal methamphetamine and 250-dollars-cash.

Both remain locked up in the Warren County Regional Jail.
