Three Washington C.H. residents are facing multiple drug-related felony charges after police found methamphetamine and cocaine during a July 3 traffic stop.

Just after midnight July 3 in the 1700 block of Sunset Drive, Washington Police Department officers made the traffic stop on a vehicle for having no taillights, according to reports. Due to the criminal drug history of the three individuals inside the vehicle, police requested assistance to search the vehicle from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office K-9 officer, “Odra.”

Odra “indicated on both driver’s side and passenger side doors,” police reports stated. Police advised the front seat passenger, Juan R. Mclavin, 36, of 1019 Golfview Drive, to exit the vehicle. He was then arrested on a Highland County Sheriff’s Office warrant.

Both the driver, Jaime Metcalfe, 39, of 625 Lewis St., and the rear passenger side occupant, Ryan J. Seymour, 41, of 1612 Sunset Drive, exited the vehicle and were searched by police.

A search of the vehicle yielded approximately 75 grams of methamphetamine, two grams of cocaine and 54 Xanax pills. All three occupants of the vehicle denied knowing anything about the narcotics inside the vehicle.

Once at the Fayette County Jail, a large baggie of suspected meth was found in Metcalfe’s underwear, according to reports. She was charged with aggravated trafficking meth (first-degree felony), aggravated possession of meth (second-degree felony), trafficking drugs (fourth-degree felony), possession of drugs (fifth-degree felony), possession of drug paraphernalia (fourth-degree misdemeanor), and tampering with evidence.

Mclavin was charged with possession of meth (third-degree felony), trafficking meth (second-degree felony), possession of drug paraphernalia (fourth-degree misdemeanor), possession of drugs (fifth-degree felony), and trafficking drugs (fourth-degree felony).

Seymour was charged with trafficking meth (second-degree felony), possession of meth (third-degree felony), trafficking drugs (fourth-degree felony), and possession of drug paraphernalia (fourth-degree misdemeanor).
