On July 17, 2011 the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Dept. arrested Harry Michael Pickney (05/16/66) of Black Rock for possession of a controlled substance (meth) and fleeing on foot. The arrest came after deputies went looking for Pickney on an arrest warrant for failure to appear in District Court. Deputies spotted Pickney walking on Third St. in Black Rock. When the deputies stopped the patrol car to speak to Pickney about the warrant he took off running on foot. The deputies chased Pickney down and placed him under arrest for the warrant and while patting him down found the meth in his front pocket. Pickney was transported to the Lawrence County Jail to await a bond hearing.
