PADUCAH, Ky. - A home search by Paducah Police and their VICE Unit Friday morning appears to have stopped an illegal drug outlet.

Complaints led to a search warrant at a home on Ohio Street.

Detectives arrested 35-year-old Travose Tharpe for possession of drugs and trafficking cocaine and marijuana and booked him into the McCracken County Jail.

A second man in the home was cited for a lesser drug offense and released.
