Two in Graves face drug charges

Staff report

Two Graves County residents - one of whom faces an animal cruelty charge - face multiple drug charges after they were arrested Tuesday.

Theresa Girard Moreland, 56, of Cuba and Bryan Girard, 34, of Mayfield were arrested after a search of Moreland's home, according to Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon.

Redmon said detectives with the Graves County and Marshall County drug divisions searched it after receiving information about illegal activity and obtaining a warrant.

During the search, methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were found, as well as several prescription pills in unmarked pill bottles.

Detectives also found a dog that belonged to Moreland. The sheriff's department said the dog was malnourished and in poor health. A Graves County Animal Control officer took possession of the dog.

Moreland was charged with first degree, second offense possession of meth; possession of marijuana; third degree possession of a controlled substance; prescription not in proper container; possession of drug paraphernalia, and second degree animal cruelty.

Girard was charged with first degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, third degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
