By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - Two Graves County men have been arrested in Paducah on drug charges.

A McCracken County Sheriff's Detective was at a convenience store in the 3500 block of Lone Oak Road on Friday afternoon when he saw what he believed was a drug transaction taking place at the gas pumps. He stopped one of the men while the other one drove away. 

The detective says 23-year-old Michael Ivie was holding a bag with suspected cocaine when he was detained and subsequently arrested. Ivie was on felony probation at the time of the arrest. He is charged with possession of a controlled substance 1st degree (cocaine) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A Sheriff's Deputy found and stopped the other man, identified as 20-year-old Taylor West, in the 3100 block of Lone Oak Road. West was arrested on outstanding Graves County warrants for trafficking in methamphetamine and engaging in organized crime. A search of West and his vehicle led to seizure of cash believed to be the proceeds of illegal drug sales. He was also charged with trafficking in a controlled substance (cocaine).

Ivie and West were taken to McCracken County Jail.
