LAWRENCE COUNTY - JANUARY 8, 2024 - Investigation Leads to Meth Dealing Arrest On Saturday, January 6th around 2pm, Lawrence County Deputy Brenten Trueblood conducted a traffic stop along Sandpit Road. He identified the driver as Terry Srygler (52 years old of Bedford) and the passenger as Beau Hash (42 years old of Bloomfield).

Theres a mile of evidence. Probably shouldn’t be driving around with drugs in the car if your license plate is no good. However the story doesn’t give a reason for the initial stop. Was there a valid traffic violation not mentioned? Or did he pull the car over solely for a fishing expedition? If the latter a good lawyer could turn this all into a huge waste of time.
