Fillmore Man Arrested on Multiple Drug Charges

A Fillmore man was arrested earlier this week on multiple drug charges in Andrew County.

The Andrew County Sheriff’s Office says on Wednesday, May 12 deputies conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle after multiple lane violations and made contact with the driver, Chester R. Patterson of Fillmore. During that traffic stop deputies discovered Patterson in possession of what they called a “large amount of methamphetamine and heroin.” He was also found to be driving while revoked.

The Andrew County Prosecutor has charged Patterson with Felony Delivery of Controlled Substance, two counts of Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance, Felony Driving while Revoked, and Misdemeanor Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Patterson is being held at the Andrew County Jail on a $5,000 Bond.
