Police looking for Murray man who ran away during traffic stop

The Calloway County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who ran away during a traffic stop.

On Tuesday, a deputy stopped a car for canceled registration plates on South 12th Street in Murray.

The driver, 29-year-old Kory Roach of Murray, was unable to find his driver’s license. Roach got out of the car and told the deputy that his driver’s license may be in the car.

Roach agreed to allow the deputy to look in the car for his driver’s license and then ran away.

A Murray Police Office assisting with the traffic stop ran after Roach,  but lost him in the residential area north of Sycamore Street.

The passenger and owner of the car, 46-year-old Kimberly Pearson of Murray, consented to a search after Roach ran away.

The deputy found methamphetamine, a baggie of assorted pills, portable digital scales, and other paraphernalia in the car.

Pearson was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance first degree, trafficking in controlled substance first degree, possession of a controlled substance third degree, and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was taken to the Calloway Detention Center.

Police are still looking for Roach.
