Pike County Sheriff's Deputies say they shut down an alleged crack-cocaine operation with out of state ties.

One man is in jail and deputies are looking for more suspects.

Investigators discovered the drugs and thousands of dollars in alleged drug money at a home in McCarr early Wednesday morning.

Investigators believe the house was the home base for what they're calling a crack cocaine-selling operation.

They believe dealers from out of state were delivering the drugs, and then the suspect, Terry Fields, was selling it in eastern Kentucky.

Pike County Sheriff Deputies are counting bags of crack-cocaine and adding up all the 100 dollar bills they recovered at a home in McCarr early Wednesday morning.

Investigators say an anonymous caller led undercover officers to the house on Peter Fork where they say they discovered the crack-cocaine, and at least 18-thousand dollars in cash.

They immediately arrested, the homeowner, 54 year old Terry Fields.

“A major drug dealer, and he is. I think the cash that was found in his possession signifies that he was dealing a lot of drugs,” Pike County Sheriff Charles “Fuzzy” Keesee said.

Investigators think Fields got the crack from out of state suppliers and was selling it in Eastern Kentucky.

Undercover officers believe Fields has three or four dealers working for him in the region.

Deputies are hunting those suspects.

Investigators also found several guns, and drug paraphernalia, including scales used to weigh crack, and Pepto Bismol containers used to smoke crack.

Deputies believe taking all of this, and Fields off the streets will make a difference.

“I think it will have a great impact, due to the fact, that it pretty well, in my opinion, shuts down his operation,” Sheriff Keesee said.

Deputies are asking for a high bond, to keep Fields in jail and the alleged operation closed.

Fields faces several drug trafficking charges and possession of drug paraphernalia and illegal possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

Officers are seeking indictments in the case.

    Please remember that God is our judge.. Not trying to seem harsh but we have all feel short of the glory of the Lord. I am not upholding anyone, but I refuse to put anyone down either! God is able to forgive, save, and bless us all! He is amazing and more than willing to change your lives! I know because he has truely changed mine! And I could never thank him enough. I only pray this touchs someone and they realize that life is too short to give thought to all the little things in life. God is on his way! He is coming..SOON! Lets not give the devil anymore time..Lets rebuke him and give it all to the Lord. We none can judge anyone else. For sin is sin! There is no big and little sin...For we all have to die out daily to sin..Lets just trust the Lord and allow him to lead and guide us..Then we will never go wrong! I can only imagine what kind of response I will receive..But God's approval is all I need..=) May God bless us all...Nothing is worth eternity in Hell...NOTHING

    As for the money it was my sister's money she endured enough abuse that more than compensated. Also anything else in your little comment that you think might pertain to me or my family you better get your facts straight.

    sharon,for your info it is not against the law to draw SS and be able to work...SS allows a person to make like $900.00 a month in addition to what you draw on SS.also you can draw SS and comp I know because a friend of mine used to work in the mines and got hurt. He is now on SS and still able to draw his comp and will contuie to draw both for life...He cant draw SSI because he draws too much from just his SS,

    it doesn't matter what kind of crime you do its still a wrong like drawing ssi and compensation and driving coal truck or living in wva or ky. and licensing your car in tenn. or living with somebody on welfare and the man is working in coal mines its still against the LAW..so you shouldnt throw stones living in glass house..and to AG that money was good when he gave it to you for down payment on house...
