Perry Man Charged With Selling Cocaine

HAZARD – An investigation into alleged cocaine sales resulted in the arrest of a Perry County man on Thursday, October 4.

Jeffrey B. Brashear, 46, was charged by Operation UNITE with one count of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Using information obtained by an approximately six-month investigation, UNITE detectives obtained a search warrant for Brashear’s home on Meadowbrook Road in the Airport Gardens section of Perry County.

About 6 p.m., with assistance from the Hazard Police Department’s K-9 and patrol divisions, detectives served the warrant and recovered two bags containing approximately one-half ounce of suspected cocaine, digital scales and some cash.

Brashear, who has a prior federal conviction for drug trafficking, was lodged in the Perry County Detention Center.

    Half an ounce of cocaine?? Is this a "drug bust" or a joke? When UNITE starts to bust the "big" guys, then we can say that it is working...look at the reports and see how much is typically taken in these busts..and you do the math!!
