Six arrested in southern Kentucky drug investigation

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department has arrested six suspects in a drug investigation.

A news release says narcotics deputies obtained a search warrant for a home on Add Floyd Road in Slate Branch after someone filed a complaint. The department says that led to an on-going investigation that deputies say showed the home was being used to sell drugs.

On Tuesday, sheriff’s units executed the search warrant and say they found items used to manufacture methamphetamine along with a quantity of methamphetamine, a .22 rifle, and over $900 in cash.

Deputies arrested Paul D “Skip” Bell, 44, Gary D Bell, 43, Merrill Brandon Martin, 26, and Robin M Dykes, 33. All four lived at the home.
They were each charged with manufacturing methamphetamine 1st offense and trafficking in a controlled substance 1st degree. Paul Bell was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

While conducting surveillance of the home, deputies say they also stopped a Pontiac Sunfire occupied by Deanna D Hays and Pamela S Herrin. They say the two were delivering Pseudoephedrine to the home, a key ingredient in the manufacturing of meth.

Deputies charged Hays and Herrin with complicity to manufacture methamphetamine 1st offense.
