Cook Arrested for Drugs & Paraphernalia


Logan County Sheriff Deputies received a 911 call about a woman who was overdosing, early Sunday morning.

Upon arrival at the home, deputies learned that a private party had taken the woman to a hospital, but witnesses were not sure which one.

In an attempt to find the woman, deputies came across a broken-down vehicle that matched the description given by witnesses.

The driver advised officers that she had run out of gas and that the woman in the back seat was the woman who was overdosing, but she was fine now.

A passenger, George Cook, was antsy and showed signs of drug use as deputies spoke with the driver.

The driver, Cook & back seat passenger were asked to step out of the vehicle as officers conducted a consented search of the SUV.

Cook continued to act agitated.

When asked if he had anything illegal on him, Cook stated that he wasn’t sure.

Cook then emptied his pockets of lighters and a used Chore Boi, which he threw to the ground.

He was placed under arrest.

Deputies also located several lighters and a clear bottle that contained a crystal-like substance in Cook’s pockets.

Cook claimed that he had forgotten the suspected methamphetamine was in his pocket.

Several pipes were found in the SUV.

Cook was transported and lodged in the Logan County Jail, where he was charged with Possession of Drug Paraophanelia and Possession of Drugs.
