London Police conducts “significant” drug bust over the weekend

Deputies with the London Police Department announced a “significant” drug bust on I-75 on Saturday, July 16.

According to London Police Department’s Facebook page, passersby noticed two men who looked like they were passed out in a car in front of the Murphy Oil station on KY-192.

During the investigation, police uncovered 3.5 pounds of marijuana, 10 THC cartridges, six packs of THC gummies, 2.5 grams of cocaine, and 4.5 grams of meth.

“Two out-of-state suspected drug dealers picked the wrong I-75 exit at which to take a drug-induced nap Saturday,” the Facebook post stated.

Their identities were not revealed. However, the two men were taken to the Laurel County Correctional Center on several charges. While two dogs were found in the car, they were taken to the Laurel County Animal Shelter.

Officers who assisted in the investigation were: Dylan Hampton, Cody Faulconer, Blake Evans, and Sgt. Elbert Riley, Cpl. Drew Jackson, Cpl. Justin Hopkins, James Williams, and Joey Robinson.

All criminal defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
