A police chase ended in an arrest Thursday. Bryan Scott Bogucki, 37, of Middlesboro, was arrested on several felony charges, including first-degree fleeing or evading police, two counts of first-degree possession of a controlled substance, manufacturing methamphetamine and tampering with physical evidence.
According to the arrest citation, Middlesboro Police Officer Barry Cowan conducted a stop on Bogucki’s vehicle around 10:30 p.m. Thursday.
As a result of a search, Cowan said he found a receipt with several manufacturing precursors on it. He also spotted foil with what is believed to be meth wrapped in it in the passenger seat of the car.
The citation says Bogucki’s car had meth, a cold pack, gas cap and tubing in the back seat. Bogucki allegedly took off in his car at a high rate of speed.
According to the arrest citation, Bogucki attempted to run from the police at the Pilot Gas Station after officers ordered him to stop. After being apprehended, police found a pill believed to be oxycodone on Bogucki.
Bogucki also attempted to eat a small blue pill during his arrest, according to the citation.
Bogucki was also charged with no/expired Kentucky registration receipt, second-degree fleeing or evading police, resisting arrest and was served three bench warrants.
As of Friday afternoon, Bogucki was still in custody at the Bell County Detention Center.
Several months ago, Bogucki was indicted on a manufacturing meth charge for allegedly cooking meth in his home.
He was also indicted on two counts of fourth-degree controlled substance endangerment to a child. According to the indictment, there was a 14-month-old and a 5-year-old present at the time of the alleged event.
