Sheriff's detectives arrest man on warrant for meth trafficking | Crime
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - A McCracken County man has been arrested on a warrant charging him with meth trafficking.
Danny Bradley was arrested at 3 p.m. on Wednesday after sheriff's detectives received a tip that he was at a home on North 38th Street in Paducah. The sheriff's office said they found him in the basement of the home.
On June 20, detectives with McCracken and Marshall County Sheriff's Departments conducted a drug investigation involving Lisa Russell and Danny Bradley. They learned that the couple had traveled to the McCracken County Courthouse on Thursday morning.
Detectives say they found a 1994 Ford Ranger, registered to Bradley, parked on the courthouse parking lot. Based on information they heard earlier, detectives say the couple allegedly could have drugs in the truck.
Detectives contacted a Paducah Police K-9 officer to help in the investigation. The officer and his K-9 officer, “Huub,” arrived a short time later. The K-9 indicated to the presence of a narcotic smell coming from the truck. Detectives searched it and found 19 grams of crystal meth concealed inside. Detectives say the seized meth has an estimated street value of $1,900.
During the investigation, detectives learned that Bradley had already left the courthouse with another man in a different vehicle. They say Russell was arrested on unrelated charges while making a court appearance for a shoplifting offense.
According to the sheriff's department, attempts to find Bradley in Paducah and Marshall County were unsuccessful.
The investigation led detectives to get and execute a search warrant at Bradley’s Griggstown Road home in Marshall County. Additional drugs, currency, paraphernalia and a firearm were seized as the investigation continued in Marshall County.
The sheriff's department said at least three additional arrests were made on June 20.
Detectives got an arrest warrant in McCracken County for Bradley on June 21 charging him with one count of trafficking in meth.
