By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A Marshall County man was arrested Monday after a McCracken County drug investigation.

According to the McCracken County Sheriff's Department, detectives had received information over the last two weeks that 47-year-old Bobby J. Whitis of Gilbertsville was selling methamphetamine, and they knew there were already several active warrants for his arrest.

An undercover detective managed to set up a purchase of meth, and came to a location on Irvin Cobb Drive to make the deal. When detectives saw Whitis pull into the parking lot, they moved in and took him into custody.

Detectives say Whitis had methamphetamine in his lap, and drug paraphernalia was also seized. Whitis was arrested for trafficking in a controlled substance 1st degree 1st offense (Two or more grams of meth), and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also served with warrants from Marshall County for failure to appear and a felony probation violation, along with warrants from Trigg and McCracken Counties for failure to appear in court.

Whitis was taken to McCracken County Detention Center.
