A man was arrested at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at his apartment located at South Main Street for alleged drug-related charges following a search of his apartment room, according to a Hopkinsville Police Department report.

The report states an officer was flagged down by an individual standing in front of an apartment building in the 1000 block of South Main, who had told police that his roommate was smoking marijuana.

The roommate continued to tell police that his roommate was Phillip Stroud, 45, Hopkinsville, and that Stroud rents one bedroom from him, the report said.

The roommate reportedly walked the officer into the main area of their apartment and pointed to Stroud’s bedroom and told the officer that Stroud and several other individuals were in the room smoking marijuana, according to the report.

Police could allegedly smell an odor of marijuana coming from the bedroom door and asked the people in the room to come into the main area. When the group left the room, they closed the door behind them and the odor of marijuana allegedly faded, the report stated.

Police then obtained a search warrant and searched the room a short time later.

The search reportedly revealed more than four grams of methamphetamine, several plastic baggies of marijuana, numerous plastic baggies and glass pipes containing burnt residue, digital scales as well as loaded and unloaded syringes, according to the report.

Stroud told officers that everything in the room belonged to him, the report added.

Stroud was arrested and charged with first-degree trafficking in meth, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.
