Three McCracken residents face drug and gun charges

Staff report

Two men and one woman face multiple gun and drug charges after McCracken County detectives arrested them Wednesday night, the sheriff's department said Thursday.

The investigation that led to the arrests began when the sheriff's deputies responded to a property dispute involving a handgun at a residence on Spann Lane in McCracken County. Deputies were met there by a woman who claimed a man named Dallas Woodford Jr., 27, threatened her with a handgun over a property dispute.

In their preliminary investigation, deputies learned Woodford was a convicted felon and unable to possess firearms or ammunition. While speaking to the involved parties at the residence, deputies saw a man later identified as Joseph Fletcher, 22, trying to leave through a window, according to a sheriff's news release. 

Fletcher was arrested on an outstanding warrant and taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail. There, according to the sheriff's department, it was discovered that he had a quantity of crystal methamphetamine hidden in his underwear.

Sheriff's department detectives obtained a search warrant for the Spann Lane residence, where they found more than 42 grams of crystal meth, 38 doses of ecstasy, marijuana, digital scales, smoking pipes, a loaded .380 handgun and $1,600.

Detectives arrested Woodford and Joseph Fletcher's 24-year-old sister, Casey Fletcher, who also lived at the Spann Lane residence. According to the department, her 10-month-old child was home at the time and was released to a family member.

Casey Fletcher was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and second degree wanton endangerment. Woodford was charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, firearm-enhanced trafficking in methamphetamine, firearm-enhanced trafficking in ecstasy and firearm-enhanced possession of drug paraphernalia.

Members of the Graves County Sheriff's Department assisted the McCracken County Sheriff's Department during the investigation, and the McCracken department's investigation is ongoing.
