MAYFIELD - A Mayfield man pleaded guilty on Monday to forgery, theft and drug charges.

According to Graves Commonwealth Attorney Richie Kemp, 28-year-old Kristopher Suiter appeared in Graves Circuit Court where he pleaded guilty to eight counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, seven counts of forgery, two counts of theft of identity of another without consent and possession of methamphetamine. He'll be sentenced to eight years behind bars.

According to the Graves County Sheriff's Department, a Farmington resident reported that checks were stolen, and cashed in Mayfield with a forged signature. The victim identified a possible suspect, and deputies located the suspect at a home on Central Road in Mayfield. Deputies say they found one of the stolen checks at the home, along with methamphetamine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and cash.

Deputies also found more than 50 scratch-off lottery tickets believed to have been purchased with proceeds from the forged checks.

Suiter, along with 25-year-old Robert Trent, Jr., and 33-year-old Sara Rickards, all of Mayfield, were at the home at the time. Suiter and Trent were arrested. Rickards was cited to court.
