arrest twoPADUCAH, Ky. (9/9/13) – At approximately 3:00 P.M on Thursday September 5, 2013, detectives with the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department Drug Division observed suspicious activity at a residence in the Farley area of Paducah, KY. Detectives had received multiple complaints regarding the residence, with the complaints alleging that illegal drug activity was regularly occurring there.
 
After a brief period of surveillance, a vehicle from the residence was stopped by Deputy Steve Croft and his K9 Pepo after the driver committed a traffic violation. During Croft’s investigation, K9 Pepo located a quantity of methamphetamine, methamphetamine paraphernalia, and prescription pain medication concealed in the vehicle.
 
Detectives and Croft conducted roadside interviews with the driver, identified as 55-year-old Ronald Andrews of Boaz, KY. During the investigation, detectives learned that Andrews was a convicted felon, had just traded his doses of Hydrocodone for crystal methamphetamine, and that he had multiple firearms and more illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia at his residence in Graves County.
 
Andrews was arrested and charged with Trafficking Controlled Substance 2nd Degree, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and traffic offenses.
 
McCracken County detectives notified Graves County drug detectives who then began an investigation in their county regarding Andrews. That investigation resulted in the seizure of more drugs as well as 63 firearms from Andrews’ residence.
 
In following up with the investigation from September 5, 2013, detectives with the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department conducted surveillance of Dewayne Fike, a 35-year-old male from Paducah, KY. Detectives were familiar with Fike from a previous investigation in which Fike was arrested on August 14, 2013 for several felony drug offenses as well as Wanton Endangerment 1st Degree and Criminal Mischief 1st Degree.
 
Detectives located Fike at a business located at 3220 Irvin Cobb Drive Paducah, KY. Fike was observed selling methamphetamine to another person during that surveillance. Fike was later located inside the business and arrested without incident.
 
Fike was charged with Trafficking Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine) and lodged in the McCracken County Jail.
 
More charges are pending against both Andrews and Fike.
 
Individuals with information pertaining to illegal drug crimes can contact the drug division directly at 270-444-5157
