GRAHAM, Ky. (7/8/14) — A Graham man was arrested on several charges including possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon when authorities served a search warrant after being contacted by a man and woman that reported he threatened them and fired a weapon.
According to a Muhlenberg Sheriff's Department report, Sgt. Shannon Albro responded to 230 Brick Street in Graham in reference to the incident Friday, July 4. The victim told Albro that she and her boyfriend had gone to the residence to inquire about items for sale.

Fuqua was lodged in the Muhlenberg Detention Center.Det. Wade Griggs and Deputy B.W. DeArmond assisted in the investigation.
