GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says 4 people were arrested and a juvenile released to his parents Thursday afternoon after they were involved in alleged illegal drug activity in Mayfield.

Redmon says his office received a call of possible illegal drug activity taking place outside at 709 Wright Street.

When a detective with the Drug Unit arrived, he found 5 young adults and 1 juvenile sitting under the carport of the home, and allegedly smelled the odor of marijuana very strongly.

During interviews it was determined that the juvenile was highly intoxicated.

Two of the adults admitted to having marijuana in their possession.

James Creason, 20, of the Dublin community, admitted to bringing marijuana to the home and selling some of it and smoking with the others.

Jonathon Sierra, 19, of Mayfield, had marijuana in his pants pocket and also admitted to smoking it.

Whitney Vermast, 22, and Tyler Hall, 20, both of Mayfield, admitted to smoking marijuana prior to the detectives arrival.

The 4 adults were arrested and the juvenile was released to a parent to appear before Judge Crooks in Juvenile Court.

Creason was charged with unlawful transaction with a minor, trafficking in marijuana - less than 8 oz., possession of drug paraphernalia, and public intoxication.

Sierra was charged with public intoxication and possession of marijuana.

Both Hall and Vermast were charged with public intoxication.

 The other adult was sober and stayed at the residence to care for her child and Vermast’s child. The Mayfield Police Department assisted at the scene.
