With help from the Pike County Sheriff’s Department, deputies in Letcher County made what they call a major drug bust.
Two arrests resulted from a six-month investigation. Investigators say they found four pounds of methamphetamine (estimated street value of $180,000), about ten grams of heroin and more than $5,000.
Deputies said they believe the drugs involved caused numerous thefts, burglaries, and overdoses in and around the county.
They arrested Danny R. Collins, 62, and Samantha D. Collins, 36. Deputies say they are father and daughter. Both face charges related to trafficking drugs. A grand jury could choose to indict them on other charges.
Four guns and a 2000 Ford F150 pickup were also taken during the bust.
