MAYFIELD - A Mayfield man was arrested Wednesday night on drug and theft charges.

The Mayfield Police Department says officers responded to a convenience store on West Broadway in reference to complaint of an intoxicated man. Officers were able to obtain a description of the suspect, and located him just east of the store.

Officers said 47-year-old Jeffrey Cope, of Mayfield, displayed slurred speech, improper balance, and smelled of alcohol. When officers searched Cope, they reportedly found stolen merchandise from the service station.

Store employees told police that Cope had tried to sell them marijuana while in the store. Upon further search of the area, a small plastic container was found that contained suspected marijuana.

Cope was placed under arrest and transported to the Graves County Jail. He is charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place 3rd or more offense in 12 months, theft by unlawful taking, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
