Paducah Man Facing Drug Trafficking Charges
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A Paducah man was arrested on drug trafficking charges after a month long investigation.

On Thursday, detectives stopped a vehicle driven by 22-year-old Damonterius Stigger. Detectives reportedly knew that Stigger did not have a driver's license. When Stigger noticed the officers, he allegedly jumped out of his vehicle and fled on foot, failing to put the vehicle in park, which struck a building causing damages.

Stigger was caught a short time later, and officers reportedly found ecstasy, oxycodone, and fentanyl pills he had thrown while running.

Detectives say they also found marijuana and cash on Stigger's person. After executing search warrants on Stigger's vehicle and home, officers reportedly seized over $18,000, marijuana, fentanyl, and ecstasy.

Stigger was arrested and is being charged with trafficking in a controlled substance (fentanyl derivatives), second degree fleeing or evading, possession of marijuana, tampering with physical evidence, and driving without a license.

He was lodged in the McCracken County Jail.
