RPD arrests one for child endangerment

During the morning hours of July 20, Russellville police officers arrested Cody Ray Anderson, 35, and charged him with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a child.

According to Russellville Police Department Lt. Jake Tompkins, RPD received a call about a suspicious vehicle pulling into a residence on East Lawrence Street.

“Nobody was supposed to be at that residence,” he explained.

By the time officers arrived at the residence, the suspect had already made it to Highway 24. Tompkins said that he was able to stop Anderson on Highway 24.

There was an assortment of odd items in the vehicle, as well as Anderson’s child.

“We have been unable to determine if the items were stolen or not yet,” Tompkins said.

During their investigation, officers discovered what they believed to by crystal methamphetamine and a syringe in the driver’s side door of the vehicle. Tompkins said Anderson eventually claimed to be in possession of the substance.

The RPD contacted the Department of Human Resources, and DHR sent an agent to the scene. The child was taken by DHR and placed with a family member.

Anderson is currently being held in the Franklin County Detention Center. According to Tompkins, he was previously out on a community corrections bond and is being held on that bond right now.
