GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. - Deputies in Graves County, Kentucky arrested a man on terroristic threatening and drug trafficking charges.

Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says deputies from Graves and McCracken counties were searching for a stolen motorcycle near the 11900 block of Hopewell Road. Deputies then found 39-year-old Alejandro Gonzalez, who was wanted on Terroristic Threatening charges, inside a home in the area.

Redmon says Gonzalez provided a false name to deputies at the scene before admitting his real name. Deputies then searched the home and found methamphetamine, scales and about $2,000 in cash.

Two ATVs, one of which was believed to have stolen in Carlisle County, were also seized from the home.

Gonzalez was arrested on the warrant for Terroristic Threatening in addition to charges of Trafficking in a Controlled Substance 1st Degree and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Redmon says the investigation is ongoing and more charges against Gonzalez are possible.
