Deputies from Grayson County Sheriff's Department, along with officers from the Leitchfield Police Department, arrested Marchmond "Sonny" Cottrell, 78, of Grayson County on Monday on drug trafficking charges.
Deputy Buck Meredith conducted a traffic stop on Cottrell shortly after officers watched Cottrell sell a large quantity of marijuana. A search warrant was then issued for Cottrell's residence at 2036 Hardin Springs Road where more marijuana was located, along with other items used in the trafficking of marijuana.
Cottrell was lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center on marijuana trafficking charges (8 oz to 5 lbs).
Deputy Buck Meredith is currently leading the investigation
