A Dawson Springs man was jailed Friday night in a drug bust that included federal and local officers.

A statement from Hopkins County Sheriff Matt Sanderson says Adam W. Hays, 41, had been watched by detectives since last year for “large-scale trafficking of crystal methamphetamine.”

Hays was arrested on Hodge Street in Madisonville around noon Friday. Sanderson says Hays had a “significant amount” of possible crystal meth, along with a stolen vehicle, drug paraphernalia, a pink revolver and a “large sum” of cash.

Hays reportedly also had “a large amount” of the opioid drug Fentanyl “imported from out of state.”

Hays is charged with first degree trafficking in a controlled substance, importing Fentanyl or its derivatives, buying/possessing drug paraphernalia and receiving stolen property. His bond was pending Friday afternoon.
