Paducah man faces multiple drug charges

Staff report

A Paducah man was arrested Wednesday and charged with several drug-related offenses.

Paul Lamb, 61, of Markham Avenue faces charges that include drug trafficking and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon following an investigation by the McCracken County Sheriff's Department, Sgt. Jesse Riddle said in a news release.

The investigation began after detectives received information alleging illegal drug activity was taking place at Lamb's residence, Riddle said.

Lamb was arrested after Deputy Steve Croft reported stopping him for traffic violations. Detectives found marijuana, hydrocodone and Percocet that had been packaged for sale, as well as money believed to be the proceeds from illegal drug sales, Riddle said.

Police obtained a search warrant for Lamb's residence. They found more than 6 pounds of marijuana packaged for sale, digital scales, doses of Percocet and hydrocodone, and additional controlled substances. Detectives also seized two loaded handguns found near the drugs, Riddle said.

Lamb has been charged with three counts of trafficking in a first-degree controlled substance (Percocet); one count of trafficking in a second-degree controlled substance (hydrocodone); trafficking in marijuana more than 5 pounds; possession of a handgun by a convicted felon; and possession of drug paraphernalia. The drug charges were firearm-enhanced.

Lamb's criminal history includes felony convictions for manslaughter, trafficking in marijuana, trafficking in a controlled substance and being a persistent felony offender, Riddle added.
