Seven Drug Dealer Arrested In Spencer County

Date of News Release: 10/03/2007

(Frankfort, KY) - On Wednesday, October 03, 2007 at 6:30 AM Kentucky State Police, Taylorsville Police Department and the Spencer County Sherriff's Office set out to execute fourteen Kentucky State Police arrest warrants on ten individuals.

This initiative started over a year ago on October 21, 2006 in Spencer County with a partnership between Taylorsville Police Department and the Kentucky State Police Post 12 Frankfort.

Post 12 Frankfort undercover drug investigators made drug buys in Spencer County after receiving information from the Taylorsville Police Department and complaints from citizens. Taylorsville Police Department worked to provide intelligence and Post 12 Frankfort provided expertise in undercover operations.

These arrests are the result of undercover drug buys involving the trafficking in methamphetamine, marijuana, prescription pills, and cultivation of marijuana. The investigations also led to the seizure of several vehicles. Most of the arrests involved suspects selling prescription pills. The individuals trafficking in prescription pills received the medication by; doctor shopping, selling their own prescribed pills and stealing from others including the elderly.
