Sheriff's Office makes one of the biggest meth busts to date

The Laurel County Sheriff's Office made a massive drug bust in Corbin on Wednesday.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root says he has never worked a meth bust of this magnitude.

On Wednesday night, officers arrested 38-year-old Christina Holt after finding half a pound of crystal meth and a large amount of cash in her apartment.

Police say the street value of the crystal meth was around $20,000.

They believe Holt was dealing crystal meth to numerous people in Laurel County.

Neighbors say they didn't know Holt very well but were shocked to hear what was allegedly going on behind closed doors.

Christina Holt is being held in the Laurel County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond.

Holt is expected to be in court Friday morning.
