PADUCAH, KY (12/20/11)—The McCracken County Sheriff's Department arrested a pair of Paducah men on various offenses on Monday afternoon, December 19th, after receiving a complaint of alleged trespassing.
McCracken County Sheriff's Deputies and detectives responded to Starnes Drive in McCracken County on Monday afternoon at approximately 3:49 pm after receiving a complaint that two men had pulled off the roadside onto private property and were watching deer in a field. Deputies located the two men, one in the field (Cody Ogg), and one in a Jeep Wrangler on the property (Jason White). Deputies arrested Ogg after a search of his person yielded a syringe with suspected methamphetamine residue and a loaded .40 caliber semi-auto handgun. Deputies then searched the Jeep that belonged to Ogg. During the search, deputies seized additional methamphetamine drug paraphernalia and two additional firearms—a loaded shotgun and rifle from the vehicle. Shell casings were also located in the vehicle floor board, which would indicate the weapons had been fired from the vehicle.
Ogg's juvenile son was also located in the vehicle as well. Deputies called the child's mother to pick up the child. The mother arrived a short time later, driven by Darrel Myers. Deputies determined that Myers was under the influence of alcohol and or drugs and placed him under arrest for driving under the influence.
Deputies contacted Sgt. Garry Clark of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife suspecting that the men had been hunting without a license. A subsequent investigation by Clark revealed that Ogg had been hunting without a license, had taken a deer without a permit in Livingston County earlier in the year and had entered the land on Starnes Drive in McCracken County to shoot or hunt without the consent of the landowner. Sgt. Clark cited Ogg for those offenses.
Additionally, detectives determined that Ogg had recently purchased Sudafed two days prior, knowing that it would be used to make methamphetamine.
As a result of the investigation, Cody W. Ogg, 26, of Paducah, KY, was arrested and charged with Possession of Controlled Substance 1st Degree—Methamphetamine (a class "D" felony, punishable by 1 - 5 years), Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of Controlled Substance 3rd Degree, unlawful distribution of a meth precursor (a class "D" felony, punishable by 1 - 5 years), hunting without a license, hunting without a deer permit, failure to telecheck a deer and entry to shoot/hunt without consent.
Darrel B. Myers, 42, of Clark’s River Road in Paducah, KY, was arrested and charged with Driving Under the Influence of Drugs/Alcohol (a class "A" misdemeanor punishable by 365 days in jail).
Both Ogg and Myers were lodged in the McCracken County Jail. The other man with Ogg was not arrested.
