1 facing drug charges, 2 others facing bond violation charges in Graves Co., KY

GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Three people were arrested on Monday, June 22 in Graves County, Kentucky.

Gregory Morris, 25, of Mayfield, Ky., was charged with possession of a controlled substance first degree methamphetamine and driving on suspended/revoked license.

In addition to those charges, police say they learned Morris originally told them the wrong name. They say he gave them his brother's name and social security number during questioning.

Morris now faces additional charges of identity theft of another without consent, giving an officer a false name and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to police, Morris also had an outstanding warrant in Graves County at the time of his arrest.

Jennifer Pittman, 38, of Mayfield, Ky., was charged with two counts of violation of conditions of release.

Jonathon Cash, 30, of Mayfield, Ky., was charged with violation of condition of release.

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon said drug detectives went to a home on State Route 440, just north of Mayfield, to look for Jennifer Pittman for violating her conditions of release on her bond.

Sheriff Redmon said Pittman and Cash were arrested a week before at the same address and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance: meth. They both bonded out of jail, with certain conditions of no contact.

While officers were trying to talk to someone in the house, Sheriff Redmon said Morris pulled into the driveway.

Morris told the officers he was bringing food to the people in the house.

Sheriff Redmon said Morris' driver's license had been suspended and when detectives searched his vehicle, they allegedly found some paraphernalia in the driver's door that contained meth.

When other deputies arrived, Redmon said they entered the home and found Pittman and Cash inside.

All three were taken to the Graves County Jail.
