A Graves County man was arrested on drug-related charges Sunday afternoon.

Jacob Canter, 29, is charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine; and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Graves County Sheriff's deputies said they responded to a complaint that a State Route 464 homeowner was afraid to return home because her son was under the influence of drugs.

Deputies said they encountered Canter upon arrival in the garage and observed an item commonly used in ingesting methamphetamine lying on a work bench. A field test of the object confirmed the drug's presence, deputies said.

During the investigation, deputies said they learned a Kentucky Emergency Protection Order on Canter was issued by the Graves County court system saying that he was not to have any illegal drugs on the property. Canter was charged with violating an EPO.

It was further determined that he had two criminal summons served on him for two counts of probation violation.

Canter was arrested and booked into Graves County Jail.
