RICHMOND, Ky., (WKYT) - Berea police say they have arrested the director and several employees of Jen's Little Rascals Learning Center in Richmond on charges related to drug trafficking.

At this time, police can't say if the learning center is connected to the suspected drug trafficking.

Jennifer Mullins, the director of the learning center, is charged with first-degree drug trafficking along with several other drug charges.

Two of her employees, Christopher Mullins and Jermaine Benning, are also charged with drug trafficking.

Police say they arrested another man, Jermaine Twilley, who is also facing trafficking charges, while they were searching two homes on North Cross Point in Richmond.

"We found several items of paraphernalia, a drug processing table as well as 50 packs of individually packed heroin for sale. We got a lot of drugs off the street," said Sgt. Jake Reed.

Police can't say who the homes belong to at this time. According to the police report, the heroin was wrapped in lottery paper.

Reed says they've seen heroin use spike this year. He says this was their biggest heroin bust yet and he says there will be more to come.

"There will be more drug arrests and search warrants conducted, I can tell you that for sure," he said.

Our request for jail interviews with the drug trafficking suspects was denied.

Police say they're still looking for Joe Davis Twilley in connection to the case. If you know where he is call police.
