Four men have been arrested in Floyd County following a drug bust according to local sources. Police in Kentucky have charged the men with drug crimes after drugs were allegedly found in an apartment they raided. No court date has yet been announced by authorities, though the accused men are likely now focused on planning their criminal defense.
The alleged details of the raid
According to the limited report, it appears police in Floyd County received tips that a drug operation was underway at a local hotel in Ivel. When police arrived at the location, they say they saw one man flee the area. They also say they found what is believed to be quantities of oxycodone, heroin, drug paraphernalia and money. They also say they found baggies of a crystal-like substance floating in a water tank.
Four men, aged 27, 28, 35 and 49 respectively, were arrested as part of this operation. They have all been charged with multiple drug-related charges as well as tampering with evidence. It is unclear at this time whether they remain in police custody.
How things may play out moving forward
Depending on the outcome of the Kentucky criminal proceedings, these men could be found guilty of serious drug crimes. This could result in extended jail time as well as fines and other punitive measures. This is why each individual will be represented by a criminal defense attorney as they face the charges in state court. These attorneys will do their best to defend their clients by carefully reviewing the facts of the case and developing a strong defense.
