Guns, drugs seized during New Year’s Eve traffic stop

A Nevada resident has been charged with multiple crimes after a traffic on New Year’s Eve.

According to officials with the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office, Jamie Boykin, 47 of Nevada, was stopped by detectives who were working a New Year’s Eve detail. During the stop suspected methamphetamine, paraphernalia, cash, and a gun were located.

Boykin was taken into custody without incident.

Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher said several extra patrols were out on New Year’s Eve and he was glad they were able to stop someone that could have hurt someone.

“He was running around with drugs and gun, so the detectives did an excellent job at getting him off our streets,” Mosher said.

Boykin has been charged with Delivery of a Controlled Substance, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.

He is being held in the Vernon County Jail on a $50,000 cash only bond.
