9 arrested in Graves County drug sweep

Staff report

Nine Graves County residents were arrested Friday in three drug raids that police say uncovered evidence of meth labs.

Eric Douglas, 37, and Melissa Cagle, 35, both of High Street; Justin Fuqua, 30, and Angela Thomas, 36, both of South Eighth Street; Dustin Blake, 28, and Stephanie Conway, 25, both of Mayfield; Karly Scott, 32, of Benton; Marcello Majors, 59, and James Majors, both of Farmington, face drug-related charges after the Graves County Sheriff's Office and the Mayfield Police Department executed the search warrants.

As part of a joint investigation, police served the warrants around 2:30 p.m. at 315 High St., 614 South Eighth St. in Mayfield, and 8027 Ky. 121 South in Farmington. Officers found evidence that methamphetamine was being manufactured at the two locations within the city limits. Police also discovered methamphetamine packaged in plastic bags, syringes loaded with the drug, bags of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia, Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon said in a news release.

Officers reported that the loaded syringes were found at a home Douglas and Cagle share with Cagle's 4-year-old son. The syringes were located in a duffle bag that contained clothing that had been packed for the child and was lying on the floor of the utility room, Redmon said.

Douglas and Cagle were both charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Douglas also faces a charge of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, more than two grams, first offense.

Fuqua and Thomas were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Fuqua was additionally charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, more than two grams, methamphetamine.

Blake and Scott were both charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Conway was charged with complicity to manufacture methamphetamine. Marcello Majors faces charges of obstructing a government operation, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana, and second-degree possession of a controlled substance. James Majors has been charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, cocaine; possession of marijuana; tampering with physical evidence; promoting contraband; operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs/alcohol and other traffic violations.

McCracken County Sheriff Jon Hayden, drug unit detectives and the department's dog assisted with the raids, Redmon added.
