    By Sue Caldwell, Reporter
    A McKee man has been arrested and charged with drug related offenses after a traffic stop on US Hwy 421 North, 11 miles north of McKee. In a citation, according to Sergeant Daniel Isaacs of the Jackson County Sheriff's Department, he observed James Scott Biggs, 47, Sand Lick Road, McKee, travelling north on Hwy 421. Isaacs said he called KSP Post 7 Trooper Tyler Morris who was in front of his vehicle and advised him that Biggs had an active arrest warrant. When Morris and Isaacs got behind Biggs, he quickly pulled off the roadway into a gravel pull off and did not use a turn signal. After the officers contacted Biggs, it was confirmed that he did have an active arrest warrant. When asked if Biggs had anything illegal on his person, he stated he had a meth pipe in his right sock. The officers then asked him if he had any illegal drugs on the motorcycle that he was driving and Biggs stated he did not and gave consent to search.
