On the morning of Monday, June 11, 2018 Center Police made a traffic stop on a vehicle in the parking lot of the Westview Nursing Home. That stop yielded the arrest of two individuals from Center, John E. McMillan and Shawn D. Nett. Seized from the vehicle was crystal methamphetamine and powder methamphetamine, 2 glass pipes used to smoke methamphetamine, numerous hypodermic syringes, marijuana, prescription pills, and other drug paraphernalia. Nett was found to be currently on parole/probation for previous felony drug charges and was transported to Pike County Jail for holding on the charges. Charges on McMillan are pending.

All subjects are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law. It is not uncommon in the legal system for charges to be amended, dropped, or not filed.
