Deputies say 35 grams of crystal meth, more than $2,000, digital scales, a Ruger 9 mm semi-automatic pistol, and other drug-related items were found in the vehicle, a 2004 Cadillac. A search of a home on Clark Street uncovered additional drugs and drug paraphernalia, according to deputies.
Elder was charged with first degree meth trafficking, possession of drug paraphernalia, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, and possession of marijuana. McGee was charged with first degree meth trafficking.
Elder and McGee were jailed in the McCracken County Regional Jail.
