Madison County deputies say a man is behind bars facing a methamphetamine trafficking charge stemming from a Sunday traffic stop.
Investigators say a deputy pulled over a pick-up truck because of traffic violations. The driver, Rex Segars, pulled over in his driveway on McCormick Drive. The deputy spotted multiple weapons inside the vehicle which led to a search. Investigators say they recovered a total of three shotguns, six rifles, four handguns, digital scales, thirteen ounces of methamphetamine and more than $4,500 in cash. One of the handguns recovered was reported stolen.
