The McCracken County Sheriff’s Department arrested two men Thursday afternoon on drug related offenses after a traffic stop in McCracken County.

On Thursday at around  4:13 p.m. a deputy conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for traffic violations in the 1500 block of Lone Oak Road.

In the vehicle were Francis E. Dehaven Jr., 39, of Goshen, Indiana, and Jason T. Carnine, 34, of Paducah. 

During the stop, officials searched the vehicle and found a methamphetamine smoking pipe, numerous syringes, a digital scale and a small quantity of methamphetamine.

Deputies say they saw numerous track marks on Dehaven’s left arm.

A drug detective arrived on scene and spoke with Carnine.

The detective found a large pill bottle concealed in a 32 ounce drink cup that was in Carnine’s possession.

The pill bottle contained Hydrocodone and $156 in cash.

A later investigation revealed that Carnine had concealed the pill bottle in his drinking cup and placed the lid back on while the vehicle was being pulled over, in an effort to conceal it.

Carnine did not have a prescription for Hydrocodone.

Both men were arrested and lodged in the McCracken County Regional Jail.

Dehaven faces charges of careless driving, possession of a 1st degree controlled substance - methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Carnine faces charges of tampering with physical evidence and possession of a 2nd degree controlled substance - Hydrocodone.
