By West Kentucky Star Staff
MCCRACKEN COUNTY - A McCracken County man, who was recently released on parole, was arrested Friday night.

The McCracken County Sheriff’s Office and the Graves County Sheriff’s Office conducted a joint investigation into illegal drug trafficking occurring in McCracken and Graves Counties. 

The investigation led to the home of 40-year-old Clinton L. Brewer on Old Mayfield Road in McCracken County.

Brewer and 33-year-old Amber D. Lowe of Paducah, were in the home at the time. Brewer’s mother, 59-year-old Margaret Brewer, arrived home while detectives were still at the scene.

During the course of the search, Lowe was allegedly found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana. 

A search of Margaret Brewer’s bedroom also allegedly revealed a small quantity of marijuana and items of drug paraphernalia. 

Approximately 15 grams of crystal methamphetamine was located by a Paducah Police K-9. It was determined that the methamphetamine belonged to Clinton Brewer.

Lowe and Margaret Brewer were issued citations and released. 

Clinton Brewer was arrested and taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail, charged with first degree trafficking in a controlled substance-methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Brewer was recently paroled out from prison in December after serving 20 years for a murder conviction, along with first degree robbery and first degree burglary convictions that occurred in McCracken County. He was sentenced to life in prison, with the possibility of parole.
