GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

A Mayfield man was arrested on drug trafficking charges Monday afternoon in northern Graves County.

According to the Graves County Sheriff's Office, deputies were on a call Monday afternoon for a stolen motorcycle possibly hidden in the woods off Hopewell Road.

While searching, they noticed 39-year-old Alejandro Gonzalez was at a home on 11907 Hopewell Road.

Deputies knew of an outstanding warrant for the arrest of Gonzalez for terroristic threatening charges from another incident in Graves County.

During a search of the home, deputies located methamphetamine, digital scales and around $2,000 in cash.

Gonzalez's vehicle was also found hidden in the woods by the house.

Deputies also seized 2 ATVs from the house that had been brought there by Gonzalez.

Authorities believe one of the ATVs may have been stolen from Carlisle County and that investigation is ongoing.

Gonzalez gave deputies a fake name after being approached.

After being confronted about the fake name and comparisons were made to his personal identification, Gonzalez was arrested and taken to Graves County Jail.

Gonzalez was charged with trafficking a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The investigation is ongoing and could lead to more charges according to the sheriff's office.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
