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.
