PADUCAH - The McCracken County Sheriff’s Department Drug Division arrested six people on Saturday for methamphetamine trafficking at the conclusion of a drug investigation.
 
Last week, drug detectives identified numerous individuals involved with trafficking in large amounts of methamphetamine in Paducah, and other areas. The investigation found that these individuals were staying in Paducah hotels.

Detectives with the McCracken, Marshall, and Graves County Sheriff's Departments worked together to locate and identify several of these individuals. Detectives conducted surveillance at a Paducah Hotel where the suspected drug offenders were staying.
 
Detectives arrested three Paducah residents, 39-year-old Eric Walls, 45-year-old James Mullins, and 26-year-old Audrionna Mullins. They also arrested 40-year-old Ari Jones, of Oak Grove, 40-year-old Danay Satcher, of Elizabethtown, and 25-year-old Erica Tracy, of Frankfort. 
 
During the investigation detectives seized approximately 295 grams of crystal methamphetamine, scales, smoking pipes, and cash believed to be proceeds of illegal drug sales.
 
The investigation showed that Ari Jones, Danay Satcher and Erica Tracey traveled from Frankfort to deliver methamphetamine to Paducah.
 
Danay Satcher attempted to give detectives a false name. Satcher had three outstanding warrants for his arrest out of Hardin County for absconding parole, child support, and an indictment warrant for trafficking in methamphetamine and other illegal drug offenses.
 
Ari Jones was on felony parole at the time of his arrest and had at least three prior convictions for trafficking in cocaine. Eric Walls was also on felony probation for trafficking in methamphetamine at the time his arrest.
