2 accused of selling meth

Staff report

Two Graves County residents were arrested this week on methamphetamine-related charges.

Tyler Reed, 24, and Brittany McClain, 26, both of Mayfield, were arrested Wednesday afternoon.  Detectives arrested them at a convenience store just north of Mayfield, Deputy Sheriff Steve Halsell said in a news release.

Halsell said Reed drove into the parking lot and went inside the business, allegedly to meet with a meth buyer. Detectives detained Reed. When officers looked inside the vehicle, they found a plastic bag of methamphetamine in the driver's seat. When police asked McClain, a passenger, if she had illegal drugs on her, she said she did, Halsell said.

Reed and McClain were jailed and charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (more than 2 grams of meth), and first-degree possession of a controlled substance (meth).  

The multi-agency group consisted of drug detectives from the McCracken, Marshall and Graves County sheriff's department and a special agent with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

A female Mayfield officer assisted with the search.
