MAYFIELD, Ky. - Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon reports that 5 Graves County residents were arrested Sunday evening on drug and other charges related to having stolen property in their possession. This happened after investigators set up a sting operation to recover a stolen Hoyt compound hunting bow.

Investigators received information that 25 year-old Robert Carter was advertising a Hoyt compound bow for sale on a popular social media site. The Sheriff's office had been investigating the theft of a bow with the same brand and equipment as the one presented in Carter's ad.

A sting was set up in Mayfield for Carter to deliver the bow to a person that was supposedly interested in buying it. When Carter arrived, he was accompanied by 25 year-old Cody Widelski. Several deputies moved in and arrested both men when they retrieved the bow from their vehicle.

A search warrant on Carter's home revealed a large quantity of marijuana, firearms, digital scales, and other paraphernalia including a sum of cash. 21 year-old Montana Rivers West was at the home with her child.

Investigators learned that an individual was traveling to Carter's house to conduct a marijuana transaction. Deputies positioned themselves and arrested 24 year-old Treshad England and 24 year-old Demetrek Moss.

Carter was charged with receiving stolen property, trafficking marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.  Widelski was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property. West was charged with trafficking marijuana, receiving stolen property, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Moss and England were charged with trafficking marijuana.

All the offenders were lodged in the Graves County Jail awaiting court proceedings. Redmon said the investigation of thefts from vehicles that have happened over the past few weeks continues and he expects more arrests in the near future.
