Marijuana plants, firearms seized from Logan County home following indictments

It was a busy day for Jacky Hunt and the South Central Kentucky Drug Task Force.

16 arrests were made from 36 indictments after numerous tips to law enforcement agencies across Logan County.

Hunt, the director of the SCKY Drug Task Force, has a message for a drug riddled Logan County:

"If you deal drugs you're going to get caught."

The 15 arrests from indictments weren't the only arrests made on Wednesday, several others coming after discovering more outstanding warrants during their round up.

"In addition, several other individuals were arrested that didn't have any association with the roundup, just happened that our guys ran across them and they had indictment warrants or warrants for other reasons," Hunt said.

At one home in particular, law enforcement discovered a significant amount of guns and paraphernalia.

"We got multiple firearms, several marijuana plants, prescription opiates, individual paraphernalia items and that sort of thing that were used for drugs, in one location today," Hunt told 13 News.

It happens quite often here in Logan County, serving an indictment on one thing, but sniffing out a whole lot more.

'Sometimes we'll have a warrant on one of them and we'll go to the house and there'll be multiple people there and a lot of times we end up getting into more than what we went there for," Hunt describes.

A busy day for the Drug Task Force, yes. But a good day, indeed, to get more drugs and illegal weapons out of the county.

"We're organized and we're intent on getting those drugs off the streets, so we're out there looking for those people that are selling illegal drugs," Hunt said.
