Graves County detectives infiltrate growing operation

Staff report

Two marijuana growing sites were disbanded Thursday night after two men got into a fight, police said.

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon said that Chad Spillman, 33, of Wing, called dispatch about 9 p.m. to report that the windows of his house on Ky. 339 had been broken by someone with a baseball bat. When they found their suspect, Randy Wray, 37, of Wingo, he was questioned, Redmon said, which eventually led them back to Wray's home.

Inside they found a small amount of marijuana and the baseball bat they believe was used to cause up to $15,000 worth of damage to Spillman's home.

Detectives returned to Spillman's home for a search. They found that two rooms had been turned into marijuana cultivation rooms, with high-powered lights and filtration systems.

Later, officers learned of a second location with growing marijuana. Police estimated the street value of the marijuana at $34,000.

Four people were arrested. Wray was charged with first-degree criminal mischief and cultivation of marijuana. Spillman faces charges of cultivating marijuana and tampering with physical evidence. Cammy Wray, 26, of Wingo was charged with cultivating marijuana, tampering with physical evidence, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.  Jonathon Brann, 33, of Mayfield was charged with cultivating marijuana.
