GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Deputies with the Graves County Sheriff's Office arrested two men on assault, drug and firearm charges on Monday, Oct. 31.

According to the sheriff's office, Kenzo Anthony Sherrill, 48, and Justin Starks, 31, were booked at the Graves County Jail after deputies assisted the probation and parole officers with a home visit at a house located on Rt. 1276 just north of Mayfield.

Deputies followed and after a short foot chase, Sherrill was caught and detained.

During the search of the home, owned by Starks, deputies found a large amount of powdered cocain.
