Casey couple face marijuana charges

LIBERTY - Two people were arrested Monday on illegal trafficking and cultivation of marijuana charges, police said.

Shannon Graham, 24, and Mike Graham, 26, both of 3410 Bass Ridge Road, Elkhorn, were charged with trafficking in more than 5 pounds of marijuana and cultivation of more than five marijuana plants, according to Casey County Deputy Sheriff Bob Weddle.

Authorities found marijuana allegedly growing near the Graham residence while investigating a burglary next door, said Weddle.

The Grahams live near the Casey-Taylor County line.

"We found marijuana in two large garbage cans, two 10-gallon containers and a cooler," said Weddle.

"All the marijuana had been processed and bagged in half-gallon zip lock plastic bags," he said.

Weddle estimated about a quarter of a pound of marijuana in each bag. He said the amount of marijuana has not been determined.


It will be labeled and weighed before it is sent to the state lab for tests.

Weddle along with Deputy Sheriffs Chad Weddle and Dennis Allen searched the Graham farm. The alleged marijuana was found in the house and barn.
