Officials raid home just feet away from school

Operation UNITE raids a home in Hazard, just a stone’s throw away from a middle school.

It was quite a sight as officials descended on the neighborhood.

The house was located on College Street basically in the back yard of Roy G. Eversole Middle School.

It’s an area that neighbors say is usually quiet.

Operation UNITE teamed up with local forces to conduct a search warrant at this home in downtown Hazard.

Officials say it’s something they have been watching for a while.

All of this activity was occurring within feet of the middle school that lies just beyond a fence.

Something neighbors and area employees never saw coming.

In all two people have been arrested.

Payne Olinger Jr. is charged with trafficking a controlled substance and Eugenia Boggs is charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Officials with UNITE say this investigation is still ongoing.

Once the search of the house is completed they will determine if more arrests need to be made.
