By West Kentucky Star Staff
GRAVES COUNTY - A Mayfield woman was arrested early Sunday morning on fleeing and methamphetamine charges.

The Graves County Sheriff's Office said a deputy observed a vehicle being driven by 20-year-old Vanessa Vasquez who had a suspended operator’s license. The deputy lost visual of the vehicle but later found it parked behind a house on South 8th Street.

Several neighbors told the deputy that three occupants of the vehicle fled on foot. The deputy pursued Vasquez on foot toward College Street but another vehicle pulled up and Vasquez entered that vehicle and fled.

The deputy attempted to pursue the vehicle but lost visual of it. During a search of the vehicle that Vasquez was driving, deputies reportedly found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

At around 1:30 am Sunday, Kentucky State Police stopped a vehicle that Vasquez was suspected of being in. Vasquez was in the vehicle and was taken into custody without further incident. Vasquez was lodged in the Graves County Jail on charges of operating on a suspended or revoked operator's license, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, fleeing or evading police and on a warrant for bail jumping.
