Drug bust underway in Frankfort

It was a busy Wednesday morning for Kentucky State Police troopers and Frankfort Police officers, after a joint investigation lead to arrest warrants for dozens of suspected drug dealers.

Starting around 5 a.m., police from both agencies hit the road and started knocking on doors, looking for suspected drug dealers.

The lengthy investigation included some undercover work, but police say many of the breakthroughs came because of tips from the public.

"Lot of times the public doesn't see what's going on, some of this took 18 months. You may not see anything immediately but in the long run we'll take care of it," said Detective Kevin Calhoon of the Kentucky State Police.

Police say most of the individuals will be charged with trafficking in pills. A few will be charged with dealing cocaine.

Police plan to make more arrests in the coming days.
