Two arrested after deputies find moonshine still, pot being grown | Crime
GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Two people were arrested Wednesday after a late night shooting in the Wingo area.
Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says deputies and Kentucky State Police troopers were dispatched to 2191 McNutt Road around 10 p.m. When they arrived they found Brad Enoch, 50, had been involved in an argument with his girlfriend.
Redmon says during the argument, Enoch pulled a shotgun on the victim and at some point during the argument fired a shot at the victim. He says there was a scuffle and the victim was able to get away from Enoch.
According to the Redmon, Enoch then left before officers arrived and while looking for him, deputies and troopers found an area inside an outbuilding at the home where marijuana had been growing but the plants were no longer there. Officers say they also found suspected moonshine and a moonshine still in a separate outbuilding on the property.
Police say Enoch came home a few minutes after the items were found. When interviewed, they say he admitted to growing marijuana and making moonshine at the house and selling it. They say Enoch also admitted to moving the marijuana with the help of another man because he did not want law enforcement to find it.
Sheriff Redmon says Enoch's cooperation led to the recovery of the gun used in the shooting as well as the recovery of several marijuana plants.
Daniel Massey, 33, of Wingo was also questioned in this incident and was admitted to helping Enoch in moving the marijuana plants so law enforcement would not find them.
Enoch was charged with first degree wanton endangerment, cultivating marijuana over five plants, possession of drug paraphernalia, assault fourth degree (domestic violence), first offense possession of an apparatus used for unlawful purpose of making alcoholic beverage, first offense illegal sale of alcohol in a dry territory and intimidating a participant in the legal process.
Massey was charged with cultivating marijuana over five plants, tampering with physical evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Captain George Workman is continuing the investigation into this case. He was helped by Sgt. David Warner, Deputy Mike Riley and Troopers Alison Ramsey and Thomas Clifton.
