Two men arrested on firearms charges in Graves County

Posted: Updated:
GRAVES COUNTY, KY -

The Graves County Sheriff's Office says in the past two days two men were arrested on charges of carrying concealed firearms and drug charges. 

Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says Monday a detective saw Brett Gream of the Pryorsburg community operating an off-road motorcycle on US 45 in Wingo and conducted a traffic stop. Redmon says the detective saw what looked like the butt of a handgun sticking out of Gream's waistband while the detective was waiting on a check of Gream's driver's license. 

Gream was searched, and a bag of marijuana was found in his pocket. 

On Tuesday, a Wingo police officer contacted the sheriff's detective asking for assistance with someone at the KY Mart in Wingo on US 45 South. The officer said he'd gotten a call from someone at the business who was concerned because there appeared to be a gun in the man's pants. Once at the store, authorities arrested Steven Holmes Jr. of Hickory. He is accused of concealing a .22 caliber gun in his pants. 

Redmon says Holmes also had a small bag of a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine in his pocket.
