GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Two people were arrested in Graves County and one person is wanted stemming from separate drug busts.

According to the Graves County Sheriff's Office, detectives from several agencies served two different search warrants in Graves County overnight.

One of the homes was located in the Wingo community and the other was just north of Mayfield on Dorothy Lane just off US45.

Detectives had learned that illegal drug trafficking was happening at both places.

Two people were arrested as a result.

Michael Musser, 32 of Wingo, was charged with trafficking marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Also arrested was Brittany Baker, 24 of Mayfield, charged with conspiracy trafficking controlled substance; possession of controlled substance, heroin; 2 counts of wanton endangerment and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon said over 6 ounces of marijuana was seized along with over $8,000.

Also a small amount of meth and heroin were seized along with scales, pipes, baggies and other items.

Baker's children were in a bedroom with her and there were reportedly dangerous drugs in the nightstands next to the bed in the room within reach of the children.

A social worker with Cabinet for Family and Social Services was called and emergency custody was given to get the children out of the home.

Both Musser and Baker were taken to the Graves County Jail.

The police are currently searching for Baker's husband, Dusty E. Baker.

Dusty Baker is described as a 33-year-old white man, 5'11'' with blue eyes and balding hair.

If you have any information you're asked to call the Graves County Sheriff's Office.
