Story 30 Comments Font Size: MT. VERNON, Ky.(WSAZ)-- State Police say they arrested an estimated 200 people in an eastern Kentucky round up of alleged drug dealers.

Police tell the Lexington Herald-Leader the arrests Wednesday were part of an unprecedented attack on alleged interstate drug traffickers.



More arrests are expected Thursday, with up to 500 people possibly to be charged by the time police are finished.

Kentucky State Police Capt. Kevin Payne confirmed the round up and told the newspaper that every state police post in eastern Kentucky is involved.

One federal indictment in the investigation charges 14 people with scheming to bring oxycodone and methadone into eastern Kentucky from Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

According to the paper, State Police in Pikeville arrested 75 to 100 people in Pike, Floyd, Johnson, Magoffin and Martin counties.

Since the arrests are being handled on a post-by-post basis, not all names have been released yet. Here is a list of the ones we have so far:

All the statistics are collected through KSP. Their results reflect Sheriffs Office & Local Police Depts. Not just KSP, they are simply the repository of crime data collection.
