FRANKFORT , Ky.– The largest drug roundup in Kentucky’s history unfolded this week as state, local and federal officers stormed dozens of homes with felony arrest warrants for 518 people, striking at the heart of an illegal prescription drug trafficking organization.

‘Operation Flamingo Road' is the culmination of a three-year effort involving multiple law enforcement agencies that began with a KSP/FBI investigation focusing on individuals obtaining prescription drugs in Florida then returning to Kentucky to distribute illegally.

Brewer said a majority of these charges were for Trafficking in Controlled Substance first and second degree which are felony charges that include penalties ranging from 18 months to 20 years in prison if convicted.

KSP detectives obtained 327 of the 518 total arrest warrants issued in 33 counties.

Arrest warrants are for individuals in the following counties: None in Casey

The Kentucky Medical Examiners Office reported that the state led the nation in use of prescription drugs for non-medical purposes in 2008. Preliminary numbers from the Kentucky Office of Vital Statistics confirmed that 877 deaths in the Commonwealth were attributed to prescription drug overdoses last year.

"Prescription drug abuse leaves many of the impoverished even poorer and leads to crimes such as robbery, burglary and theft," said Brewer. "This agency will continue every effort to vigorously investigate these types of cases."

Bravo...they wont ever arrest the big dealers,,,,,,drugs are money to state of Kentucky......BIG money

the whole Justice system is based on the drug busts/arrests they make, they need drugs just as bad as a drug users.

besides the cops dont want to be un-employed. if they arrested everyone the Cops- justice system would fail.

its a well known face in Eastern ky most of the cops drop in once a month to get their payoff money.

$$$$$$$$$$ its funny what a few dollars will do to a person.. greed is the way to control someome.. throw them a dollar they will follow U like a puppy.
