3 Paducah residents face drug charges

Staff report

Three Paducah residents face drug charges following a traffic stop on Saturday, according to the McCracken County Sheriff's Department.

Officers stopped a vehicle about 11 p.m. driven by Brandee Wallace, 31, with two passengers, Tina Shaw, 36, and William Houston, 26, all of Paducah, for not wearing a seatbelt. During the traffic stop a search of the vehicle located methamphetamine residue in a container, pseudoephedrine pills in the passenger compartment of the vehicle, and several active methamphetamine labs, items used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine, used needles and other methamphetamine paraphernalia in the trunk, police said.

The pseudoephedrine pills had been purchased for use in the manufacturing of methamphetamine. The investigation also determined that Wallace had consumed illicit drugs while pregnant, according to the news release from the sheriff's department.

Police said Wallace faces charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, unlawful distribution of a methamphetamine precursor, fourth-degree controlled substance endangerment of child, operating on a suspended license and failure to wear a seat belt.

Shaw faces charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, unlawful distribution of a methamphetamine precursor, first-degree possession of controlled substance-methamphetamine, third-degree possession of controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Houston faces a charge of manufacturing methamphetamine. All three were taken to the McCracken County Jail.
