Two Paducah men and a man from Mayfield were arrested in McCracken County Sunday night as part of a joint law enforcement investigation involving the McCracken County Sheriff's Office, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Marshall County Sheriff's Office and the Graves County Sheriff's Office.

According to the report from the McCracken sheriff's office, the investigation began about a month ago when detectives received information alleging that James Dickey, 40, of Paducah, was selling crystal methamphetamine. Through the investigation, detectives made a controlled methamphetamine purchase from Dickey.

On Sunday, detectives reportedly received information that Dickey was meeting with his source of supply for more meth. Detectives found Dickey's vehicle at 6:40 p.m. on H.C. Mathis Drive in Paducah and made a stop on the vehicle.

Dickey was the driver of the vehicle, and his passenger was identified as Marrio Webb, 32, of Paducah. During the traffic stop, detectives reportedly found and seized about a pound of crystal meth and money believed to be proceeds of illegal drug sales. Dickey and Webb were both taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail.

In a separate investigation on Sunday, detectives obtained information alleging that Tresviante McCampbell, 29, of Mayfield, would be delivering some meth and pills to a hotel on Lone Oak Road. McCampbell was seen arriving at the hotel at 9:36 p.m. When detectives approached McCampbell, he was reportedly seen throwing a bag down that was found to contain a pound of crystal meth.

After his arrest, detectives reportedly found about 100 pills suspected to contain Fentanyl concealed on him. During a search of the vehicle that McCampbell had arrived in, detectives found and seized $5,214 that is suspected to be from drug proceeds.

McCampbell also was taken to McCracken County Regional Jail. McCampbell and Webb were both on felony probation at the time of their arrests for drug trafficking.

Dickey was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, while Webb was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine and tampering with physical evidence. McCampbell was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, trafficking in Fentanyl and tampering with physical evidence.

The investigation is ongoing.
