Two Mayfield residents face drug charges after an investigation.

Detectives took them into custody at a convenience store just north of Mayfield.

According to the sheriff's office, Reed went inside the business to meet with the prospective buyer of methamphetamine.

When officers looked inside Reed's vehicle, they say laying in plain view was a baggie of meth in the driver’s seat. McClain was a passenger in the vehicle, when asked if she had illegal drugs, she told them that she did in her underwear.

Detectives say Reed and McClain admitted they were at the store to sell a quarter ounce of meth to someone.

Drug Detectives from McCracken, Marshall and Graves County Sheriff’s Offices and a Special Agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives took part in the investigation. The Mayfield Police Department dispatched a female officer to assist with the search.
