MCCRACKEN COUNTY - Six people were arrested on drug charges following numerous complaints of drug activity at a home on Lackey Street in Paducah.

Over the past several months the McCracken County Sheriff's Office has received several complaints regarding illegal activity at the home. 

On Monday, detectives began surveillance of the home and noticed a vehicle leaving the residence. According to detectives, they learned that the driver, 31-year-old Ashton B. Dawe of Paducah, had three active arrest warrants out of McCracken County.

They performed a traffic stop on the vehicle, where they spoke with Dawe and two passengers, 26-year-old Paul J. Floyd of Paducah, and 21-year-old Mariah C. Rodrigues of California. Detectives say the vehicle smelled like marijuana and they could see drug paraphernalia in plain-sight.

Detectives searched the vehicle and allegedly located methamphetamine, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

All three were arrested and lodged in the McCracken County Jail.

Later that afternoon, detectives arrived at the home to perform a search. As they pulled into the driveway, they noticed three people in the driveway sitting in a vehicle. The front seat passenger, 29-year-old Nathan Bledsoe of Paducah, reportedly ran when he saw detectives. After a short chase, he was apprehended and taken into custody.
