Three people were arrested in Fulton after police received a tip that two Memphis men were allegedly there to kill someone and had weapons.
The arrests were made Thursday at 706 Beechwood in Fulton, according to Fulton Police Chief Terry Powell.
Arrested were Racicalas Boyd, 27, of Memphis, charged with trafficking marijuana, wanton endangerment of a child and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon; Steven Craig, 19, of Memphis, charged with trafficking marijuana; and Sami Ray Campbell, 33, of Fulton, charged with trafficking marijuana and wanton endangerment of a child.
All three were held in the Fulton County (Ky.) Detention Center after their arrests, Powell reported.
The Fulton Police Department was assisted in the incident by the Kentucky State Police, Fulton County Sheriff’s Department and Fulton County Detention Center.
Powell reported information had been received from a tip alleging that two men from Memphis were staying at 706 Beechwood and were carrying fully automatic weapons.
He said their alleged intentions, noted from the tip, were “they were here to kill a person in Fulton.”
A search warrant was executed at the Beechwood Street apartment, where Powell said police found weapons, marijuana and money.
Weapons were located under a baby’s crib, while marijuana and another firearm were found in other locations at the residence, Powell said in a weekend press release.
A 2-year-old child in the home was turned over to a relative during the arrests of the three suspects. Powell said information will be turned over to the Kentucky Department of Social Services relating to the child’s safety and conditions at the time of the search. Published in The Messenger 11.12.12
