GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - The Kentucky State Police announced Saturday the arrest of a man believed to be a major supplier of methamphetamine in the area.

On Thursday, June 4, 2015, detectives received strong information regarding the trafficking of methamphetamine from a home in Graves County.

A subsequent investigation led to the execution of a search warrant at the home of Randy Brownlee, 63.

During the search, detectives located approximately 25 grams of crystal meth.
