Many areas are still dealing with flooding, even as snow and sleet start to replace the rain. Some of the local major rivers are above flood stage and still rising. The good news is, many of the others have crested and will start to fall. The snow and sleet will continue through much of the day, before wrapping up tonight. Most areas will see several inches of accumulation. Keep it locked to WYMT for updates.
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.
