Meth found after stop adds time to prison sentence

Monday, January 30, 2006

A Dyer County man in prison for violating the Motor Vehicle Habitual Offender Act was sentenced Tuesday in Dyer County Circuit Court to an additional prison term for methamphetamine possession.

Robert "Butch" Bevis Jr., 32, was charged with possession of more than .5 gram of methamphetamine with intent to sell or deliver while he was out of jail on bond on two charges of violating the Motor Vehicle Habitual Offender Act, District Attorney General Phil Bivens told Judge Lee Moore.

"After Mr. Bevis was arrested for the MVHO violations the Dyer County Sheriff's Department received information that he had a quantity of meth at his home," Bivens said. "A search of the residence found a safe in a hole in the wall of the bathroom and the safe contained methamphetamine."
