Six arrests in McCracken County for meth

PADUCAH — On Saturday, the McCracken County Sheriff’s Office Drug Division arrested six people for methamphetamine trafficking.

Last week, drug detectives found that several people staying in Paducah hotels have been trafficking large amounts of meth in Paducah and other areas.

After observing the Paducah hotel on Saturday, detectives followed two vehicles involved with the drug trafficking.  Both vehicles were stopped in the 2600 Block of HC Mathis, and four men and two women were arrested.

Eric Walls, James Mullins, Audrionna Mullins and Ari Jones were inside one vehicle. Danay Satcher and Erica Tracy were in the other vehicle. Eric Walls was seen throwing a baggy of meth inside his vehicle while detectives were placing them under arrest.

Detectives found around 295 grams of crystal meth, scales, smoking pipes and cash.

Ari Jones, Danay Satcher and Erica Tracey traveled from Frankfort, KY to Paducah to deliver meth to Walls, J. Mullins and A. Mullins. All six individuals were unemployed.

Danay Satcher attempted to give detectives a false name. Satcher had three outstanding warrants for his arrest out of Hardin County, KY, for absconding parole, child support, and an indictment warrant for Trafficking in Meth and other illegal drug offenses.

Ari Jones was on felony parole and had at least three prior convictions for trafficking in Cocaine.

Eric Walls was also on felony probation for trafficking in Meth.

All six individuals were lodged in the McCracken County Regional Jail.
