Search Of Floyd County Home Uncovers Drugs

PRESTONSBURG – A search at a Floyd County residence on Thursday, March 22, uncovered a stash of Methadone and a small quantity of suspected marijuana.

Following a five-month drug trafficking investigation by Operation UNITE, detectives obtained a search warrant for the home of 29-year-old Corey D. Fraley in the Burchett Trailer Court off KY 321 north of Prestonsburg.

About noon, six UNITE detectives, three members of the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office, and a Kentucky State Police Trooper executed the warrant and found 29 Methadone tablets, approximately 4 grams of suspected marijuana, and $753 in cash.

Fraley was arrested by the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office on four outstanding bench warrants and lodged in the Floyd County Detention Center.

The drug investigation is on-going and the case will be presented to the Floyd County Grand Jury for indictment.
