Paducah Men Arrested on Meth Charges

houston scoggPADUCAH, KY (4/2/12) – A joint investigation conducted by The McCracken County Sheriff's Department and the Marshall County Sheriff's Department led to the arrest of a pair of Paducah men Friday afternoon.
 
On March 29, 2012, Detectives with the McCracken County Sheriff's Department Drug Division began an investigation after receiving complaints of Meth Manufacturing occurring in the city limits of Paducah. The investigation revealed that both Paul S. Scoggins and Michael Houston were involved in the manufacture of Methamphetamine. Through their investigation, Detectives learned that Houston was residing at 2400 Palmer Street and Scoggins was residing at 421 Hays Avenue in Paducah.

As part of the investigation, a Detective, acting in the undercover capacity, contacted Scoggins. The Detective was told that if he could supply the men with Sudafed, that he would receive a quantity of Methamphetamine in return. On March 30, at approximately 1 pm, as part of a covert investigation, the undercover Detective arranged to meet the men at a residence located at 2400 Palmer Street.
 
Through surveillance, both Scoggins and Houston were observed loading meth making items into a vehicle. Detectives and Sheriff's Deputies stopped the vehicle near the intersection of South 9th and Jones Street as it left the Palmer Street residence. Both Houston and Scoggins were arrested. During a search of Houston, Detectives seized Lithium batteries.
 
A search of the vehicle revealed liquid fire, Sudafed, Coleman fuel, tubing, three containers of lye, hydrogen peroxide, freezer bags, a hair dryer, pliers and other items used to manufacture methamphetamine.

Both Scoggins and Houston were lodged in the McCracken County Jail.
