A Madisonville man who said he was just trying to help people was charged with selling meth Feb. 5.
Madisonville Police Narcotics Agent David Wear said officers from Madisonville and deputies from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office had conducted and investigation into Sharron Sutton and felt they had enough information to serve a search warrant on him.
Wear said they found Sutton at his residence on Oklahoma Street and a search of him turned up one gram of a crystal like substance in his right pants pocket.
Wear said a search of the residence turned up two more grams of the crystal substance in a dresser drawer.
Wear said Sutton waived his Miranda Rights and said he distributes a small amount of meth to “help other people.”
Wear said he checked Sutton’s cell phone and saw several text messages that indicated drug transactions had taken place.
Sutton, 41, was charged with possession of meth for resale.
