MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - The McCracken County Sheriff's Department is asking for help in finding a man wanted on drug trafficking charges.

In November of 2015, detectives received tips alleging that 32-year-old Christopher Cline was involved in illegal drug activity at his residence at 2142 Jefferson in Paducah.

In order to investigate the allegations, detectives conducted a controlled purchase of methamphetamine from Cline. During the investigation, detectives learned that Cline was on parole for other offenses, including drug offenses, theft, and escape.

On December 18, 2015, the McCracken County Grand Jury voted to indict Cline for one count of Trafficking Methamphetamine Over 2 Grams. A warrant was issued for his arrest and detectives have been actively seeking Cline since then. However, Cline recently moved and fled from parole. A Parole Warrant has also been issued for Cline.

Tips that lead to Cline's arrest are eligible for a cash reward through Crimestoppers, phone number 270-443-TELL (8355).

Individuals with information pertaining to illegal drug crimes can contact the McCracken County Sheriff's Department Drug Division directly at 270-448-1516 or 270-444-5157.
