Traffic Stop Leads to Meth Charges for Graves Man
By Joe Jackson
PADUCAH, KY - A Graves County man is facing methamphetamine trafficking charges. Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon said 36-year-old Chad Bradley of Mayfield was arrested in McCracken County during a traffic stop.
Bradley was lodged in the McCracken County Jail on felony warrants that were filed in Graves County as a result of a long investigation into his illegal drug activities. Investigators charged Bradley with trafficking a controlled substance, methamphetamine and tampering with physical evidence.
According to Redmon, detectives had been investigating Bradley for several months and had gathered enough evidence on his illegal actions to charge him. Redmon said federal prosecutors may eventually take the case and its possible Bradley will have to serve time in a federal prison if and when he is found guilty of the charges.
