2 facing gun, drug charges in Graves Co.

GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Two Graves County, Kentucky residents were arrested on Wednesday afternoon, July 8 after officers served a warrant.

Brett Eigenraugh, 24, of Mayfield, was charged with possession of a controlled substance first degree methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of burglary tools, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and failure to appear on a felony offense.

Melanie Price, 47, was charged with two counts of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, possession of a controlled substance first degree methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon, Drug Unit detectives and other deputies went Jimtown Road to serve a warrant on Eigenraugh.

He said they had gotten information that Eigenraugh may be at the home, and that he would have meth and possibly several guns on him.

Officers say a juvenile at the house tried to deny that Eigenraugh was in the house. Officers then talked to Price, the homeowner, and they say she told them someone was in the house but she was not sure what his name was.

A few minutes later, officers say Eigenraugh came out of the house and was taken into custody without incident.

While searching him, they allegedly found a box cutter and a glass meth pipe in his pocket.

Sheriff Redmon said officers determined Price was a convicted felon. Officers searched the home and allegedly found two .22 handguns in the bedroom. Another meth pipe was also allegedly in the bedroom and had meth inside it.

Eigenraugh and Price were taken to the Graves County Jail.

Sheriff Redmon said the juvenile will be processed through the Juvenile Court System on a charge of hindering apprehension.
