GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

The Graves County sheriff says three men from western Kentucky are facing charges after a home search of a convicted felon turned up drugs and guns.

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says Trent Andrews, 18, of Paducah and Cody Andrews, 19, of Boaz, both are facing drug and gun charges.

A search warrant was issued at a home on Route 994 in Boaz after McCracken County narcotics officers took Ronald Andrews, 55, of Boaz into custody after a traffic stop in McCracken County on Thursday. Charges are pending in Graves County on Ronald Andrews.

During an interview, officers learned more illegal narcotics were inside his home in the Boaz community.

Ronald Andrews also told investigators that he had loaded guns inside the home and that he was a convicted felon. He was taken to the McCracken County Jail.

During the search of the home, deputies found marijuana, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia and took in 63 guns that were found throughout the home.

Officers say several of the guns were loaded and ready to discharge.

The Kentucky State Police K9 Unit was utilized during the search of the residence.

Cody and Trent Andrews were taken to in the Graves County Jail. Detectives from Graves and McCracken Counties are continuing the investigation.
