Kentucky probe nets arrests, drug seizures

ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say more than two dozen people have been arrested in a crackdown on illegal drug activity linked to a bus terminal in Ashland.

State police said Friday that investigators seized more than $1 million worth of illegal drugs as part of a three-month investigation.

Police say the probe focused on drug activity at the Greyhound bus terminal in the northeastern Kentucky city.

Investigators received information indicating the terminal was being used as a narcotics hub to traffic drugs between the Ashland area and Detroit. Police said the arrests prevented large amounts of prescription pills, heroin and marijuana from reaching the streets.

During the investigation, police made 28 drug arrests and troopers seized heroin with a street value exceeding $850,000 and prescription pills worth more than $150,000.
