Three Paducahans were arrested on drug and firearms-related charges resulting from a search for a wanted person in McCracken County Friday.

Teresea West, 24, is charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, first offense, and possession of drug paraphernalia. There was also a warrant in West’s name for failure to appear.

Brandon Elias, 46, is charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, first offense, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

David Slaughter, 62, is charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and possession of marijuana.

McCracken County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a residence on Old U.S. Highway 45 in reference to a wanted person around 1 p.m., where they observed several individuals run inside. Detectives and deputies then cleared the residence and made contact with West.

The deputies saw firearms and methamphetamine in plain view. The firearms in question were found to belong to Slaughter, a convicted felon.

A warranted search of the property revealed additional methamphetamine and paraphernalia. Deputies located a vehicle belonging to Elias on the property, which contained methamphetamine and paraphernalia, as well.

West and Elias were arrested and transported to McCracken County Regional Jail that day. Slaughter turned himself in to detectives Monday.
