Local man arrested on drug charges

Staff report

Detectives with the McCracken County Sheriff's Department arrested a Paducah man Thursday on multiple drug charges, including cocaine trafficking, according to the sheriff's department.

The sheriff's department began an investigation Wednesday into Paducah resident Chris Sherley, 35, after receiving a complaint that he was selling crack cocaine.

According to the sheriff's department, Sherley has a lengthy criminal history, including a 17-year sentence for trafficking cocaine on the second or subsequent offense and trafficking marijuana on the second or subsequent offense in 2008, as well as 2009 convictions for bail jumping, driving under the influence, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and being a convicted felon in possession of a handgun. The department's investigation began with detectives purchasing crack cocaine from Sherley on Wednesday. Detectives also purchased crack cocaine from Sherley on Thursday, after which he was found and arrested.

According to the sheriff's department, marijuana, U.S. currency - believed to be proceeds from illegal drug sales - and a quantity of crack cocaine were found on Sherley when he was arrested. Sherley's vehicle was seized as part of the investigation. Sherley, who was out on parole for his previous convictions, was charged with three counts of trafficking cocaine on the second or subsequent offense, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Individuals with information pertaining to illegal drug crimes can contact the McCracken County Sheriff's Department Drug Division directly at 270-448-1516 or 270-444-5157.
