Two fugitives with multiple warrants, including for drug trafficking, have been arrested in Grayson County after a two day search.
The Grayson County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) had been looking for 30-year-old Justin W. Snodgrass, of Morgantown, and 30-year-old Terra “Gabbi” Proctor, of Smiths Grove, since Monday after receiving information the fugitives were in Grayson County.
Proctor was wanted in Butler County for trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine), unlawful possession of a methamphetamine precursor, possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), being a persistent felony offender, and criminal trespassing along with non-moving violations. She was also wanted for a probation violation for a felony offense.
Snodgrass was wanted in Ohio County for trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine), fleeing or evading police (in a motor vehicle) and DUI. He was also wanted for a probation violation for a felony offense out of Butler County.
On Wednesday, the GCSO received information that the fugitives (with at least one of the suspects possibly armed) were at a residence on Whitaker Lane. Upon arriving at the home, police found the vehicle the suspects had been traveling in parked behind a barn on the property.
Law enforcement, including Grayson County Chief Deputy Jarrod Mudd, Lt. Sonny Poteet, Leitchfield Police Department Assistant Chief Brandon Cook, Officer Eugene Caine, Constable Mark Stanton, and Kentucky State Police Sgts. Brad Riley and Scott Brown, and Troopers Brandon Brooks, Jared Clemons and Kyle Lashley, knocked on the door of the residence, with no one answering.
Mudd then obtained a search warrant for the residence, with police making forced entry into the home and locating and arresting both fugitives.
Authorities spotted methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in plain view inside the residence, resulting in both fugitives being additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the arrest citation.
The home’s occupant was not at the residence when police arrived.
Both suspects were lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center.
