Investigation Nets McCracken Meth Arrests
By WestKyStar Staff
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY - Four people have been arrested on methamphetamine and other drug related charges after a weeklong investigation by McCracken County Sheriff's Detectives.
About a week ago, the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department began receiving information about a possible meth manufacturing operation at 1430 Bryan Road.
At 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, sheriff deputies arrested a woman who lives there for drug offenses during a traffic stop. Deputies searched 46-year-old Dana R. Turner's vehicle after she was seen attempting to conceal a pill bottle under the seat of her vehicle. During the search deputies recovered doses of Soma, Valium, and a quantity of Marijuana.
Further investigation revealed that there were firearms, pit bull dogs and possibly an active methamphetamine lab inside the home. Due to the circumstances at the home, after detectives with McCracken and Marshall County Sheriff’s Departments obtained a search warrant, the Special Service Team was contacted to help execute the search warrant at around 6:40 pm. Tuesday evening.
As detectives entered the home, an overwhelming odor of ether was noticed. During a search of the home detectives seized multiple components to manufacture methamphetamine, an active methamphetamine lab, digital scales, smoking pipes and assorted drug paraphernalia. Detectives also seized multiple methamphetamine labs from outside the home.
Detectives arrested 25-year-old Sylvia Fiers of Smithland, 27-year-old Stephen R. Davidson of Paducah, and 26-year-old David J. Campbell of Paducah, on meth and other drug-related charges.
A later investigation revealed that Sylvia Fiers was pregnant at the time of her arrest. As a result, she was charged with an additional felony of controlled substance endangerment to a child.
