RECENT GRAVES COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE INVESTIGATIONS LEAD TO ARRESTS
A series of investigations by the Graves County Sheriff's Office over the past two days have resulted in multiple drug related charges and arrests.
Graves County Sheriff's Office Detectives obtained a search warrant for a residence located near the Lynnville community, at 115 Swan Road, where previously undercover methamphetamine purchases had been made from suspects at the residence.
Another unrelated investigation led to a search warrant obtained for a home near Wingo. Teams of officers from the Graves County Sheriff's Office, Marshall County Sheriff's Department, Mayfield Police Department and Kentucky State Police divided into two groups and went to these two locations, serving both search warrants Wednesday afternoon.
At the Lynnville home, Johnny Alford, 62, was outside and after seeing officers, began to run and threw a methamphetamine smoking pipe into the bed of a pickup truck parked at the residence. As officers entered the home, Susie Connell, 48, ran into the back of the home and attempted to barricade herself in a bedroom.
Methamphetamine, electronic scales, and other related items were located during the search.
Alford was arrested and charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with physical evidence, possession of a 1st degree controlled substance, methamphetamine, and Connell was arrested and charged with trafficking in a 1st degree controlled substance, methamphetamine, possession of a 1st degree controlled substance, methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
