GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says four people have been arrested and put behind bars on various charges.
Redmon says it all started when deputies and officers from Mayfield Police Department arrested Wesley Aldridge, 32, of Mayfield, after he reportedly gave officers a fake name during a traffic stop on South 10th Street in Mayfield. Aldridge had several outstanding warrants in Graves and McCracken counties for contempt of court and other charges.
During the traffic stop, detectives had surveillance set up nearby at another residence, and say Charles "Bugg" Moore, 34, of Mayfield, who was been banned from Graves County by Judge Deborah Crooks, was inside the home. Deputies arrested Moore and lodged him in the Graves County Jail on violation of probation charges.
Later in the day, the Detectives from the Graves County Sheriff’s Office, McCracken County Sheriff’s Office, Mayfield Police Department and Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force arrested Justin Kyle McClain, 27, of Mayfield and Brittany Hoover, 23, of Lone Oak after they traveled from Lone Oak to a local gas station in Mayfield to allegedly sell illegal narcotics to an undercover officer.
McClain and Hoover were both charged with trafficking in a controlled substance first-degree methamphetamine >2grams, tampering with physical evidence, wanton endangerment second degree, possession of controlled substance first degree and disregarding a traffic control device.
Redmon stated that Hoover attempted to drive away from unmarked cruisers and ran through a traffic light near the Graves County High School in an effort to flee from the scene. Other officers in marked cruisers surrounded her vehicle on Route 121 near the entrance to the hospital.
Deputies found that Hoover and McClain had their 6-week-old infant in the car with them as they were going to make the alleged drug transaction.
