OLIVE HILL Law enforcement said it has crippled a drug supply pipeline leading from Detroit to the Tri-State.
Police said following an investigation spanning almost two years detectives with the F.A.D.E. Drug Task Force, the Olive Hill Police Department and Carter County Sherriff’s Office arrested Clayton “Guy” Hill of Olive Hill. The arrest was made after authorities said they executed a search warrant in Grayson.
Seized in the search were approximately 65 grams of fentanyl, almost 2 grams of heroin and approximately 435 grams of marijuana. Detectives also located and seized an additional 417 marijuana plants, several other illegal narcotics and paraphernalia, over $4,000 in cash, five handguns and one shotgun.
Hill, 26, is charged with three first-degree counts of trafficking in a controlled substance and is currently lodged in the Carter County Detention Center on a $75,000 bond for each charge.
F.A.D.E. detectives continue to investigate and additional charges are pending. Detectives encourage the public to contact them anonymously at (606) 836-0442 about any illegal drug activity in Carter and Greenup counties.
