A Campbellsville man has been arrested and charged with selling illegal drugs.

Julian L. Underwood, 28, of 118 Carnation St., was arrested Tuesday, March 18, at 7:41 p.m.

According to Underwood's arrest citation, Campbellsville Police Officer Jonathan Leigh stopped Underwood's vehicle for having an expired license plate and several active warrants for his arrest.

Court records state Underwood's vehicle had a stolen license plate on it, though he told Leigh he bought the vehicle two weeks ago but only had its title.

When searching Underwood, officers found a small plastic bag that contained a green, leafy substance, which Underwood said was spice, which is synthetic marijuana.

After giving permission for officers to search his vehicle, they found a lunchbox containing a pill bottle with four different types of pills inside. Officers also found a digital scale with white residue, two glass pipes that had been burned, a knife, several plastic bags and a black zipper bag containing three boxes of Suphedrine tablets, one of which had a prescription label on it.

Underwood was charged with having no/expired registration plate, having no/expired registration receipt, failure of owner to maintain required insurance, driving on a suspended/revoked operator's license, theft of a motor vehicle registration plate/decal, possession of synthetic cannaboid, buy/possession of drug supplies and second- and third-degree selling less than 20 dosage units of a controlled substance.

Underwood pleaded not guilty to the charges in Taylor District Court on Wednesday, March 19. He was appointed a public defender. No bond was set. He is scheduled to appear in court again on Wednesday.
