Clay County Constable Arrested

A Clay County constable, Jackie "The Tireman" Roberts, 50, charged in a drug case sold prescription pills to an informant and snorted a crushed-up pain pill in front of that witness, according to a court document. Details about the investigation and arrest of Roberts — an elected constable with arrest powers — and his wife Jennifer, 41, were included in a sworn statement from an ATF special agent who has taken part in the case. Police arrested the couple Wednesday.
