Mayfield man facing DUI, drug trafficking charges

GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

A Mayfield, Kentucky man is facing DUI and drug trafficking charges.

Steven Burnett, 50, was arrested on warrants for no operator's license. He was additionally charged with DUI, failure to produce insurance card, trafficking in a controlled substance in the first degree (firearm enhanced), possession of marijuana (firearm enhanced), possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

According to Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon, the investigation began when they received information that a woman who had been living at a home in the 100 block of State Route 564 in Mayfield, had been using meth and was allegedly being chased from the home by Burnett, who also lived in the home along with others.

Deputies with Graves County Sheriff's Office and troopers from Kentucky State Police responded to the call.

According to Sheriff Redmon, officers learned that the woman was hysterical and afraid for her life. He said they learned Burnett was possibly driving around looking for her.

Sheriff Redmon said Burnett was known to have warrants and no operator's license.

After a deputy and troopers arrived, they say Burnett passed by the home.

Officers pulled the vehicle over in the driveway of the home.

Burnett was arrested and allegedly had a very large amount of cash on him.

Detectives and deputies got a search warrant for the home. Inside, they say they found a handgun, many other weapons, pipes, plastic baggies, rolling papers, methamphetamine and marijuana.

Burnett was taken to the Graves County Jail.

The investigation is ongoing.
