Hart Co. man busted with four ounces of meth at traffic stop

A Hart Co. man has been arrested with four announces of methamphetamine at a traffic stop.

Hart County Sheriff Jeff Wilson said his office conducted a traffic stop on the I-65 exit ramp on a vehicle being driven by 38-year-old Jeffrey O. Clancy, of Munfordville. During a search of Clancy’s vehicle, deputies located four ounces of methamphetamine.

Wilson said that soon after the seizure, the Hart County Sheriff’s Office, Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force and Munfordville Police Department obtained and executed a search warrant at Clancy’s residence, at 203 Elk Street, and discovered “evidence indicating drug trafficking.”

Clancy was arrested and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine), five counts of assault of a police officer, tampering with physical evidence, promoting contraband, and driving on a suspended license.

He was lodged in the Hart County Jail on a $100,000 cash bond.
