FANCY FARM, KY - Four people were arrested in Graves County Thursday on various drug charges.
According to Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon, 25-year-old Keila Stocum of Fancy Farm and 33-year-old James Joy, 28-year-old Michael Shane “Bubba” Sullivan and 26-year-old Michael Pittman, all of Mayfield were arrested and lodged in the Graves County Jail.
Deputies received information that a suspicious blue Chevy truck had been seen in the Fancy Farm community this week possibly scoping out homes to burglarize. The truck was spotted parked in a carport on Parsons Street in Fancy Farm and deputies were able to identify the owner of the vehicle as Sullivan.
Sullivan was wanted on a parole violation warrant and was arrested at the home. Also arrested at the home was Joy, who also had arrest warrants on file.
Joy and Sullivan were charged with trafficking in a controlled substance meth, greater than two grams and possession of drug paraphernalia. Joy was additionally charged with resisting arrest after a brief altercation with officers inside the home.
While arresting Sullivan, deputies observed crystal meth in several small corner baggies on the floor of the bathroom and a pair of scales on the sink. Police said Sullivan and Joy were in the process of weighing meth and repacking it for resale.
Pittman had denied knowing Sullivan when deputies asked if he was in the home. He was charged with hindering apprehension, possession of controlled substance meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.
A search warrant was obtained and deputies found drug paraphernalia in the basement.
Stocum was charged with two counts of wanton endangerment because her two juvenile children were exposed to ether odors in the home and had access to the meth. She was also charged with possession of controlled substance meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.
