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

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.
