MCCRACKEN COUNTY., KY-- A drug investigation turned into a huge bust when detectives recovered 60 pounds of Crystal Methamphetamine.

Authorities charged two men with trafficking the large quantity of meth yesterday afternoon in the Graham, KY area.

Two McCracken detectives were in Kentucky and Tennessee assisting in the multi-agency investigation over the past two days.

Investigations led police in Clarksville, Tennessee where they located the meth in one man’s storage locker.

Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force charged 45-year-old James M. Castile and 46-year-old Stan L. Crunk, both of Hopkinsville, with trafficking the meth.

Police stopped the two men in Graham, KY and after searching the vehicle founded approximately 225 grams of meth and several thousand in cash.

PNTF, officers with the Drug Enforcement Agency, Christian County Sheriff's Office and McCracken County Sheriff’s Department obtained a search warrant for Castile’s Hopkinsville residence.

Authorities uncovered more than 500 grams of crystal meth, drug paraphernalia and marijuana at Castile’s home. Information at his residence led police to the Clarksville storage unit.

More charges are expected to be filed against Castile.

McCracken county sheriff's department said when law enforcement agencies work together good outcomes like this occur.
