Deputies intercept 2 alleged Detroit dealers

SOUTH PORTSMOUTH — Greenup County sheriff’s deputies on Friday intercepted two alleged drug dealers from Detroit as they were headed back to the Motor City with the proceeds from narcotics transactions.

According to Sheriff Keith Cooper, the suspects, Corey J. Saucer, 36, and Antoine J. Bolden, 28, had “thousands” in cash in their possession when deputies stopped their vehicle on the U.S. Grant Bridge.

The two allegedly had made the money by selling “a large amount” of prescription pills in Greenup County, Cooper said.

Saucer was charged with two counts of drug trafficking and with driving under the influence. Bolden was charged with drug trafficking and possession of marijuana.

Deputies with sheriff’s department’s Drug Interdiction Division exclusively patrol the roadways of Greenup County in marked and unmarked vehicles, focusing on the apprehension of drug traffickers and their seizure of illegal narcotics and stolen property.

The division also is responsible for conducting undercover drug investigations, providing drug education to schoolchildren and assisting other police agencies.

According to Cooper, deputies with the Drug Interdiction Division have been instructed to seize and all property, houses, vehicles, money and other items that can be connected to illegal drug trafficking.

Anyone with information on illegal drug activity in Greenup County is encouraged to contact the sheriff’s department, Cooper said. Callers may remain anonymous.
