WHITLEY CITY — A cooperative investigation by Operation UNITE and the McCreary County Sheriff’s Office has resulted in 19 people being indicted for drug trafficking.

During the six-month investigation, officers from both depart-ments were able to purchase a variety of controlled or illegal substances including OxyContin, Hydrocodone, Suboxone and marijuana.

“Sheriff (Gus) Skinner has worked side-by-side with UNITE to identify and build cases against individuals selling drugs in his community,” said Dan Smoot, law enforcement director for UNITE.

The indictment warrants were released on Monday afternoon and law enforcement officials immediately began seeking the suspects. UNITE detectives and sheriff’s deputies were assisted by officers from the Kentucky State Police and Commercial Vehicle Enforcement.

Representatives from the McCreary County UNITE Coalition were on hand to offer assistance to those arrested as they were brought in for booking.

Those located and arrested through 5 p.m. Monday and lodged in the McCreary County Detention Center include:

• Orville Lee Daughtery, age 32, Woodpecker Lane, Pine Knot, one count first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.(Currently in jail on other drug charges in Henderson.)

• Roger Grundy Sr., age 54, Grundy Road, Pine Knot, one count first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

• Roger “Roo” Grundy Jr., age 24, Grundy Road, Revelo, one count first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and one count second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

• Luther “Doc” Moore, age 72, Pine Knot, two counts first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and three counts second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

• Wendell Dale “Red” Strunk, age 42, Everett Taylor Road, Whitley City, three counts first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

• Bryan Warman, age 37, Tunnel Ridge Road, Stearns, one count first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

• Geneva Waters, age 36, Peel Dogwood Road, Whitley City, one count first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Officers were continuing to serve warrants Monday evening.

If you read the original news report from this article you will see the dates these arrests were made. They were made in 2009 and at least one man has since died. I am sure this was only brought forward to remind us of the ones arrested then that remain in the same business today, if there are any that do so. Also, if they have cleaned up their act. The people deserve to be able to keep track on persistant felony offenders, repeat meth and/or other illegal drug dealings. The state of Tennesse has a meth register the same as it has a sex offender register for the public. I don't know if Kentucky has that also but I sure hope it does.
Just so youll know

They keep on doing it. A girl named stephanie will do you for enough to get high. Pills, dope or money to buy them with. I'll just keep posting. Mccreary county ain't done in yet. It's coming to the first of the month and keep a look out at Kroger's parking lot because they wheel and deal there especially around the first of the month. Right now we have some shoplifters and no major store or restaurant holdups, but it's getting closer and closer to it being us hit here than just some other town we hear about. People are seen in stores selling it. Report it when you see it.
what bout dat

that is right and just so i can say i told you so, when these people are caught it then becomes public knowledge and we will continue to keep it that way, since it is our court house maybe we will begin to have public forums to read and discuss the names of people arrested and what they were arrested for, so just keep on selling, buying and destroying and you could be on our public topix or forum.

I believe there needs to be more current updates published. The problem I see is there is not adequate follow up done to satisfy the public. This is mostly the cases where they just slip right through the court rooms by someone attempting to run interference to help some good buddy get off. There have been times when just a day or two before a trial was scheduled someone had not subpoenaed the witnesses for the prosecution. Sometimes those newspapers get jaded by what is actually fact and don't do their own investigative reporting, only reporting what they've been told or have received in writing from a legal staffer. These are just some of the things in over 50 years of my reading knowlegde that I find needs improving.

I just checked the sheriff's website to see who the latest round of arrests were. They have a status update on drug trafficking cases. Who was arrested and who paid the bond to get them out, along with the next court appearance. Maybe folks will think twice about posting bond for drug traffickers. I know, "innocent until proven guilty". Seems like for the most part, it ends up innocent even if proven guilty. I say that based on the sentences they receive.

A persons mistakes are never forgotten. A lifetime of living right is the only way to correct them. That's a hard cold fact. There's always someone out there that will remember the wrongs a person does, that is just the way it is. There is no excuse for anyone to choose to sell drugs, never. Anyone that makes that decision on purpose is showing they don't care for other people. I just hope when they get the chance they will make up for the lives that the drugs destroyed, because they can never undo the damage already done.

The jail just ain't big enough to hold all the trash selling drugs in this county. But I'm for chaining them up to trees with barbed wire till a holding cell comes available. Put them out on the courthouse lawn and let the public see who and what has been arrested for providing the evil and destruction to your families and friends. First offense, put them into the detention center. Second offense, then put them on public display with signs that say "I sold drugs and may have sold to some of your loved ones". Make them pay with embarrasment and teach humility to them. I hate drug dealers or traffickers or sellers. I don't care if I'm 'politically correct' or not when giving them a name. I don't care if you like it or not how I feel about them. I care about my county getting better and safer without having to see known or convicted dealers back out on my streets. I want to see more and more arrests. I would really like to see the judges and the juries have enough balls to convict and contain these people. Instead of seeing them being turned back loose for me and you to deal with. For all the pain and wrongs that have been done by the courts at Whitley, remember that you have injured and hurt. Know this, what you do to cause this injury to the innocent will come back to you. The judgement you make in a wrong mind will come back to you. The situation you leave unattended and as is, will come back to you. God Help Your Soul.
A real clear post, and aren't we all still suffering from the lawlessness of dealers and drug addicts?

two years since any major act of drug control in this county, when it becomes more proffitable and less dangerous to ignore and look the other way, then we can say america as a whole is in a real crisis. america may still be the grandest country but as a whole we have given away, sold out or traded our most intelligent and those most likely to stand up for their fellowman for drugs and money, forget power it doesn't take much power to keep imbeciles in line,
