Two adults and one minor arrested in Graves County

The Graves County Sheriff's Office says two county residents were arrested Wednesday afternoon on drug and firearm charges.

Drug unit detectives and other deputies went to the 1916 Jimtown Road to serve a warrant on 24-year-old Brett Eigenraugh of Mayfield. The sheriff's office said it had received information alleging Eigenraugh had methamphetamine and several firearms with him there.

The sheriff's office says a juvenile at the home at first said Eigengraugh wasn't there. Officers then talked to the home owner, 47-year-old Melanie Price, who told them someone was in the house, but she was not sure what his name was. A few minutes later, Eigenraugh came out of the house and was arrested.  

The sheriff's office says officers found a box cutter and a glass meth pipe in his pocket.

The sheriff's office says officers learned Price was a convicted felon while speaking with her, and they found two .22-caliber handguns in the bedroom.  Another meth pipe was found in the bedroom as well, with methamphetamine inside it.

Eigengraugh and Price were taken to the Graves County Jail.

Eigenraugh was charged with first degree possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of burglary tools, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and failure to appear on a felony offense.

Price was charged with two counts of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, first degree possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The sheriff's office said the juvenile will be processed through the Juvenile Court System on a charge of hindering apprehension.
