Indiana residents face charges in Graves

Staff report

Two Indiana residents face multiple charges in Graves County following an incident at an area business Saturday night, according to the Graves County Sheriff's Department.

Police said officers responded to a call about 9 p.m. regarding two people asking customers about obtaining drugs at the Eagle Express on Ky. 121 North in Mayfield. Benjamin Edmister, 29, and Angela Hackney, 35, both of Indiana, were found in a white Chevy Cobalt parked behind the building.

Officers said they saw Edmister using a syringe and putting an unknown substance into his arm and then attempting to conceal the evidence. Syringes, spoons with burned residue and a clear bag with what appeared to be methamphetamine were found in the vehicle. The subjects told police they were traveling from Indiana to Texas and stopped to rest at the gas station. Hackney, who was in the driver's seat, failed a field sobriety test, according to a news release from the sheriff's department.

Police said Edmister faces charges of first-degree possession of a controlled substance for opiates, first-degree possession of a controlled substance for methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with physical evidence and loitering. Hackney faces charges of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, first-degree possession of a controlled substance for opiates, first-degree possession of a controlled substance for methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to produce an insurance card, no Kentucky registration receipt and loitering. They were both taken to the Graves County Jail.
