An on-going two-month undercover investigation involving illegal narcotics ends up with two people behind bars.

Authorities executed the search warrant Wednesday evening at a residence located in the 1700 block of North 12th Street.

Paducah police say during the investigation, information was learned that indicated illegal narcotics would most likely be found in the residence.

According to police, during the search, investigators reportedly found a small amount of cocaine that was packaged for street sale, various items of drug paraphernalia, $8,050, and a .38 caliber revolver.

The cash is believed to be proceeds from illegal drug sales.

The illegal drugs, drug paraphernalia, and handgun were all located in a single bedroom of the home.

Detectives say Eddie Jones, 38, and Kendra Wade 25, were involved in illegal narcotics sales. The five other people located in the residence were released.

Jones was charged with trafficking controlled substance 1st degree (cocaine), possession of a handgun by convicted felon, and possession of marijuana.

Wade was charged with Trafficking Controlled Substance 1st Degree (Cocaine), and Possession of Marijuana.

Police say trafficking in a controlled substance 1st is a class d felony that is punishable by one to five years in prison. Possession of a handgun by a convicted felon is a class c felony. It is punishable by five to 10 years in prison.

Jones and Wade were taken to the McCracken County Jail.
