Operation UNITE Executes Search Warrants Throughout Leslie County

With the help of Kentucky State Police and Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement officers, UNITE recovered pills, pot, and weapons.

"We have recovered over one thousand pills mainly Oxycontin, Hydrocodone, Xanex, some marijuana, and found some illegal weapons," said Dan Smoot with Operation UNITE.

Brad North of Stinnett was taken into custody after Wednesday's raids.

UNITE officials say prescription pills still seem to be the drug of choice in Eastern Kentucky. They also say most of Wednesday's warrants were the result of citizens' tips and they are thankful for the community's help.
