MCCRACKEN COUNTY -- One local man is facing multiple drug charges after a recent arrest.

While out of jail on bond for drug offenses, a Calvert City man was arrested and charged with drug trafficking.

34-year old Henry Wilkey was pulled over this afternoon by McCracken County sheriff's deputies for speeding. After he stopped, deputies say they could smell burnt marijuana.

Deputies say they found marijuana, more than $1,700 worth of crystal methamphetamine, and digital scales in his car.

Wilkey was arrested by the Paducah Police Department for trafficking just five months ago and has at last four prior meth convictions in the state of Kentucky. He now faces numerous additional drug charges.
