Johnson man charged with meth possession

Lloyd Perry Conley

A Staffordsville man was arrested last week in Magoffin County after allegedly being found in possession of approximately 2 grams of methamphetamine.

According to an arrest citation by Magoffin County Sheriff’s Deputy B. Tipton, he and Magoffin County Sheriff Carson Montgomery were driving on Ky. 378 in Salyersville, when they saw Lloyd Perry Conley, 47, of Ky. 40 West, walking.

Tipton wrote that when Montgomery drove up to Conley, Conley reached into his pocket and threw something onto the ground next to the roadway.

Tipton wrote that he and Montgomery searched around to see what Conley had thrown and found a plastic bag containing an estimated 2 grams of a substance believed to be methamphetamine. Tipton wrote that during a search of Conley’s person, the officers found a set of scales in his pocket, as well as $100 cash.

Conley was lodged in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center on charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal littering.

Court documents show he remained lodged in the jail as of presstime Tuesday.
