According to officers, 'Operation HYTA' went into action Thursday, as police conducted searches at four different locations around Frankfort.
"The big thing is it's about providing a safer community for the people who live here," Captain Dustin Bowman with the Frankfort Police Department said. "That is our mission."
While executing the search warrants, police found more than 570 Oxycodone pills, 200 Xanax bars, 27.6 grams of heroin, and 650 grams of marijuana. Along with the drugs, seven firearms were seized, two of which are confirmed stolen. Over $5,000 in cash was also found.
Also among the illicit materials found during the operation was a credit card embossing machine and a credit card skimmer.
"It wasn't one of the things we were looking for," Capt. Bowman said. "However, coming across something like that, knowing some of the scams that have come about and some other different investigations that we are looking into, it could be a lead to something even bigger."
Arrested during the operation was Viktoria Gravitt, Shawn Anderson, Shabreesha Edwards, Robert Judkins, Denzel Vance, and Delshon Williams.
