A drug investigation led to the arrest of a Glasgow man.

The Barren River Drug Task Force said agents executed a search warrant Friday at an Old Bowling Green Road residence.

Agents said they encountered Michael Clayton Lowe, 46, of Glasgow, at the residence and found several bags of suspected crystal meth, a loaded firearm, pills, a large bag of marijuana, cash and drug paraphernalia on the property.

Lowe was arrested on charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (more than two grams, meth), possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
