2 Graves Co. men arrested day apart on gun, drug charges

GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

The Graves County sheriff says two men have been arrested for allegedly carrying concealed guns and having drugs.

Brett Gream, 22, of the Pryorsburg community, was charged with carrying concealed weapon, possession of marijuana, operating an ATV on the road and no motorcycle operators license.

Steven Holmes, Jr., of Hickory, was charged with possession of controlled substance - first methamphetamine second offense, carrying concealed deadly weapon and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to Sheriff Dewayne Redmon, both events happened in southern Graves County, in the city limits of Wingo.

Sheriff Redmon said on Monday, Sept. 21, a detective saw an off-road motorcycle being driven on U.S. 45 in Wingo. The driver was identified as Gream.

While waiting on a check of Gream's operator's license, the detective said he saw what appeared to be the butt of a handgun at Gream's waistband, underneath his hoodie.

According to the detective, a .45 caliber Ruger handgun was secured.

During a search of Gream, the detective said he also found a baggie of marijuana in Gream's pocket.

On Tuesday, Sept. 22, Sheriff Redmon said a Wingo officer contacted the detective and asked for help with an individual at the KY Mart in Wingo on U.S. 45.

The officer said he had received a call from a local business that was concerned when they saw the man in the store with what appeared to be a gun in  his pants.

When the detective arrived, Steven Holmes, Jr. was arrested for concealing a .22 caliber firearm down his pants.

The detective said Holmes also had a small baggie of a crystal substance in his pocket that tested positive for meth.

Gream and Holmes were both taken to the Graves County Jail.
