3 people arrested in separate drug investigations in KY

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

Three people from Paducah, KY have been arrested on drug charges, including trafficking and forgery.

Paducah Police Department Drug and Vice Enforcement detectives arrested DeAnthony Woods, 29, on Thursday at a motel where he has been staying.

DAVE investigators bought cocaine from Woods, according to Det. Chris Baxter.

Woods was arrested on a charge of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Woods was booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.

A tip from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department led Paducah Police Department Drug and Vice Enforcement investigators to a marijuana grow operation on South 7th Street in Paducah.

Sgt. Anthony Copeland said Livingston County authorities arrested Amanda Leach, 28, on charges in that county on Thursday.

During their investigation, they found photographs and text messages on Leach’s cell phone of and about marijuana plants.

Copeland interviewed Leach, who admitted growing marijuana and told Copeland where to find the plants.

Copeland checked, and found five marijuana plants growing in the woods on South 7th Street, across from Leach’s home on Murray Avenue.

The plants were seized and Leach was charged with cultivating five or more marijuana plants.

She was booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.

A McCracken County man was arrested Wednesday after he was indicted on a charge of forging a prescription for Suboxone, a Schedule III narcotic.

A local pharmacist called Det. John Tolliver, the Paducah Police Department’s prescription drug investigator, to report Ayers had dropped off a prescription that appeared to have been altered.

The prescribing physician’s office confirmed the date on the prescription had been changed, which would allow Ayers to fill the prescription sooner than was prescribed.

Tolliver presented his investigation to a McCracken County grand jury, which returned the indictment against Ayers.

He was arrested after an interview Wednesday morning and booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.
