A Madison man has been charged with possession of methamphetamine and paraphernalia and resisting law enforcement after he attempted to run from Hanover Police Officers Thursday at a local business.
Hanover Police were attempting to serve an arrest warrant on Taylor Lane Madden, 24, at Bentley & Son Auto Sales, 3250 West Clifty Drive on Madison’s hilltop, when Madden attempted to run from the officers.
The officers contacted Madden at the entrance of the business at about 5:30 p.m., to serve the warrant, but he walked away and then fled by running into another area of the building.
The officers were able to apprehend Madden in the garage area of the business and a subsequent search of the area discovered a fanny pack that contained methamphetamine and other illegal drug-related items.
Madden, who is not an employee of Bentley and Son, was charged with dealing in methamphetamine, a Level 2 felony, and resisting law enforcement.
He was later lodged in the Jefferson County Jail on preliminary charges of possession of methamphetamine, a Level 6 felony, possession of paraphernalia and resisting law enforcement, both Class A misdemeanors, as well as on the original bench warrant for Jefferson County.
Bond was set at $10,000 cash.
