FLOYD COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Thousands of dollars worth of drugs went up in flames Wednesday in Floyd County.

The sheriff's office burned marijuana and thousands of prescription pills.

The sheriff says the drugs are from nearly 65 cases that were recently closed, and most of them were confiscated within the past year.

"We're still continuing doing it and still making buys. We're going to keep fighting this problem that we have. It's a very bad problem, and we're going to continue fighting it," said Sheriff John K. Blackburn.

The sheriff says all the drugs were worth nearly $150,000.
