A Hensley man was arrested on Sept. 27 on drug-related charges after a car he was riding in was stopped by White Hall police.

Sgt. Selena Harbison said in a probable cause affidavit that White Hall officers were responding to a reported shoplifter at the Dollar General store on U.S. 270 and received information that the suspect had left in a white passenger car headed toward Sheridan.

When officers stopped the car at the intersection of U.S. 270 and Highway 104, they encountered Alex Boryschtsek, 61, who was a passenger; a records check showed that he had a search warrant waiver on file.

When Boryschtsek was searched, a clear plastic baggie with a white rock-like substance was found in his right front watch pocket.

Harbison reported that the substance field-tested positive for methamphetamine and weighed 2.3 grams.

On Friday, Jefferson County Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $10,000 bond for Boryschtsek after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge him with possession of a controlled substance. He said he would hire his own attorney.
