arrest ppoole cornPADUCAH, KY (5/31/12) – In the Spring of 2012, Detectives with the McCracken County Sheriff's Department Drug Division received information alleging that Grady P'Pool of Paducah was manufacturing methamphetamine. Detectives began in investigation. On May 30, 2012, the investigation concluded with the arrests of Grady P'Pool and Ladonna Cornwell.

During the investigation, Detectives learned that P'Pool had been manufacturing methamphetamine near Clark's River for the past 4 - 5 months and had done so over twenty separate times. The investigation showed that P'Pool had enlisted others to provide him with Sudafed to use in the methamphetamine production and that he also stored items in his residence where he lived with his girlfriend, Ladonna Cornwell, and her 14-month-old son. P'Pool also prepped items inside the residence located on Fuller Road in the Reidland area before he left to complete the manufacturing process.
 
In conducting the investigation, Detectives learned that Cornwell was aware of what P'Pool was doing and was actively assisting him by purchasing Sudafed and other items that were used to manufacture methamphetamine. The investigation showed that Cornwell had purchased Sudafed at least eighteen times in 2012 and transferred the Sudafed to P'Pool to make meth.
 
On May 30, 2012, Detectives with the McCracken County Sheriff's Department, Marshall County Sheriff's Office, and the Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant at P'Pool and Cornwell's residence on Fuller Road. Multiple items used in the manufacturing process of methamphetamine were located in the residence. Also located was methamphetamine paraphernalia including glass smoking pipes and digital scales.
 
The majority of the items located, including several volatile substances, were located in areas that the 14-month-old child could have accessed. It was also learned that P'Pool had manufactured meth inside the residence in the past.
 
Grady P'Pool and Ladonna Cornwell were lodged in the McCracken County Regional Jail on various drug related offenses including Wanton Endangerment for exposing the child to their activities.

In a separate investigation, Truman Emerson (no photo available) was arrested on May 29, 2012 in Brookport, Illinois for Trafficking Lortabs.
 
In an investigation by the McCracken County Sherriff's Department, Emerson sold a quantity of Lortab pills to a person working in conjunction with the Sheriff's Department.
 
Emerson was arrested at his residence in Brookport by the Metropolis Police Department and the Massac County Sheriff's Office, who later conducted their own investigation and charged Emerson with more drug related offenses.
