The Commerce Police Department arrested five people during the past week with possession of illegal drugs. All but one of the charges were misdemeanors.
The exception was Joey Frederick Hagwood, 39, of 129 Ridgeway Terrace, Maysville, who was charged with possession of methamphetamine.
Police responded to Fred’s, South Elm Street, to a report of shoplifting in progress. Store personnel directed them to the restroom area, where witnesses said Hagwood had entered the men’s room, the door of which was locked.
