A sheriff has to get somone to be a narc in order to make these busts. Just because other sheriffs have not been so lucky to get every other person they arrest to be a rat, does that make them any less of a sheriff? I dont think so. Its a game of luck in my opinion. How many people you can get to risk their lives to become a C.I.

Read it a little closer! They did not get 58 just on the last bust, they only got the 12 or whatever. They got 58 all together since the thing began. The way they always seem to word things is to make people think they got more than they did. Only 12 or so this time, the 58 is all together since the beginning!

O, how clever you must be to use the same old boring "food stamp, welfare", come back. Get a better quote! Call me nuts all you want, but it is true what I said. All these busts stem from spinless cowards getting in trouble and not wanting to pay their own way. You people cheer and go on like its wonderful that we are letting people obtain free, get out of your own trouble cards, and its only because of that, any sheriff can make a big name for themselves. I would rather see a sheriff have a high record for catching a bunch of thieves rather than using thieves to make a name for themselves with small time drug busts. I doubt many, if any of these people even sold enough drugs to pay their own bonds. Like the guy that had sold less than 8 ounces of pot. Get real! If nothing else its sad that people want to cheer when you see half our citizens going to jail in a time that is getting impossible to make ends meet. I find it very sad and its shamfull the way so many are on board with these modern day witch hunts!

A dozen drug dealers were arrested by about 9 a.m. Thursday by a detail of 15 Laurel County Sheriff’s deputies, three deputy U.S. Marshals and two London Police Officers.

The officers left the sheriff’s office just after 6 a.m. in four teams.

They called it Operation Spring Sting.

Thursday’s work put the cap on work beginning on Jan. 1 of this year that seized more than $40,000 in cash and vehicles.

Two of those vehicles seized Thursday were a Tahoe truck and a Lexus.

By the end of Thursday, a total of 58 arrests had been made since the first day of the year.

The arrests made Thursday totalled 12 in both Laurel and Whitley counties.

Those from other counties, said Public Affairs Officer Deputy Gilbert Acciardo, often come into Laurel County to sell drugs.

And the sheriff’s office, with a Laurel County deputy who is also a deputy U.S. Marshal, may be able to make arrests out of Laurel County.

Back at the office following the arrests, Sheriff John Root said others on the list for Thursday were not to be found. He added,“Some were out of town or in another county, but I’m sure probably by the first of the week we’ll get ‘em. We will get ‘em.”

This is the fifth drug roundup since Root was elected sheriff and took over the office Jan. 1, 2011.

He explained the first drug roundup “was huge. For a fact, usage and manufacturing are down tremendously.” He added that the drop in drug making and selling is down by about 90 percent in the county since the first roundup.

“We’re going to continue the same thing we’re doing. If they’re crazy enough to do it they can expect a visit from us. Because they will eventually get our number,” he added.

Of the 12 arrested Thursday morning, one was arrested in the Whitley County area of Corbin.

Jimmy Gilbert, 38, of Palmer Street, Corbin, was charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

The other arrests were made in Laurel County.

Robert Neal Masters, 46, of Williamsburg, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Kevin Lawson, 35, of London, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and second-degree fleeing or evading police.

Ruby Lawson, 64, of London, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Jeremiah Moore, 20, of London, first-degree possession of a controlled substance and making methamphetamine.

Jason Moore, 25, of London, trafficking in less than eight ounces of marijuana.

Raymond Bullis, 41, of Corbin, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Shawna Moore,(no age given), of Corbin, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Tammy Creech, 45, of London, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Ronnie Ratliff, 39, of London, two counts first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Casey Brock, 28, of Corbin, two counts first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

And Elizabeth Lowe, 29, of Corbin, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

All were taken to the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Eight others are on the sheriff’s office list of wanted criminals dealing in drugs.

David Robinson, of East Branch Road, East Bernstadt, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Dudley Wagers, of Bridgestone Road, London, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Brandon Smith, of Parkhill Road, Corbin, two counts first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Mark Alexander, of Seeley Road, making meth.

Johanna McCormick, of Wildcat Road, London, trafficking in a controlled substance.

James Schueler, of KY 909, London, trafficking in a controlled substance.

Cora Collinsworth, of KY 909, London, first- and second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

And Christopher Smallwood, of Lon Chadwell Street, Corbin, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

If the Laurel County Sheriff's Office is doing such a good job of "combating" drugs then why isnt their less news about it in the paper? It is all about getting "RE-ELECTED". It is all about getting in the Paper and TV for free Media Coverage. Our current sheriff has not done anything more or less than previous administrations. As for these drug busts I am not impressed. they are going after the bottom of the food chain. I have yet to see a MAJOR Drug Bust with SERIOUS Court Sentencing. Until I see twenty year Sentences and not a slap on the wrist then Laurel County still has major problems and no amount of media coverage will fix it.

I don't think the sheriff is the one that does the sentencing.
But he is doing a good job arresting them and he should get media coverage for it.

Thank you and keep up the good work Mr. Root and you will be reelected!
