Two Kentucky women were arrested last week in Tennessee in what investigators say was part of a multi-state drug ring. Sixty-year-old Susan Patterson from Pine Knot, and 34-year-old Alicia McDonald from Stearns had more than 4 grams of meth when they were arrested Wednesday.  That arrest led to the arrest of 4 others who were involved in buying and selling the drug including two from Kentucky. Police are still looking for 40-year-old Michael Lyvers who was last seen in McCreary County after leading State Police on a chase that started in Pulaski County. All six suspects face charges for drug trafficking.
