The men were in a 2005 Ford F250, pulling a 20 foot tandem axle utility trailer. Deputies said the trailer was loaded with items like a complete engine and transmission, a welding machine, a pressure sprayer, fuel tanks and other items. The truck was loaded with numerous items as well.

During an investigation of the scene by deputies, they located four handguns inside the vehicle, one of which has been confirmed as stolen from North Carolina. They also found eight grams of methamphetamine along with digital scales and baggies used for repackaging the drug. Other illegal prescription drugs, along with various items of drug paraphernalia, were also located according to the deputies.

Deputies then checked the registration plates and VIN on the vehicle and trailer and learned it too was stolen. The trailer was stolen out of West Virginia and it had a stolen license plate on it from North Carolina. The truck had a license plate on it that belonged on another truck and it has not been determined yet if the truck was stolen or not.

During the ongoing investigation, it was determined that some of the items loaded on the trailer were stolen from Tindal Truck Sales. Items from Youngblood's RV Supercenter and Youngblood's Excavating Company were located in the vehicle and on the trailer as well.

There are numerous other items that were in the vehicle and on the trailer that deputies believe to be stolen but have not yet received a complaint of the items being stolen. The investigation is ongoing and more charges are expected in the next few days.

The pair was lodged in the Graves County Jail.
