KNOX COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Six people accused of dealing drugs in Knox County are now in jail. Sheriff's deputies arrested them during a round-up on Monday morning.

The investigation targeted the Gray community. Deputies arrested the six people following an undercover investigation.

"We worked it pretty hard. There's a lot going on in both ends but we just work it as it comes to us, you know," said John Pickard, Knox County Sheriff.

Investigators say each of the six people arrested sold drugs during the undercover operation.

None of those arrested wanted to talk to us. They did not talk to deputies either.

"They wouldn't say much this morning. They wouldn't admit it though," said Sheriff Pickard.

Deputies believe putting these people in jail will make a difference in the Gray community.

"It'll help, it'll help. Anytime you can get just one, it helps. I know three of them, I think, it's their second offense, so that helps. Help keep them off the street," said Sheriff Pickard.

Linda F. Poe, age 50, Hazelfork Rd., Gray, was arrested on a warrant for trafficking in controlled substance 1st degree.
