Meade County Sheriff's Office seizes large amount of narcotics in multiple busts this week

The Meade County Sheriff’s Office Detectives and Deputies have been working diligently, yielding excellent results in removing illicit drugs from multiple busts this week.

According to Sheriff Phillip Wimpee: Starting on Tuesday, January 30, at approximately 2 p.m., Detectives with Meade County Sheriff’s Office, Breckinridge County Sheriff’s Office and the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force conducted a traffic stop on the Bypass just outside of Brandenburg city limits on a vehicle operated by Michael Heavrin. The traffic stop was conducted as part of a larger investigation into drug trafficking between the two counties. A search of Heavrin’s vehicle revealed that he was transporting suspected methamphetamine (approximately 43 grams), heroin, and marijuana in his vehicle. Heavrin is suspected of trafficking methamphetamine in Meade and Breckinridge Counties. Detectives arrested Heavrin, and he was lodged in the Meade County Detention Center pending court arraignment. 

Also, on Tuesday, Detectives seized methamphetamine during the search of a residence in Muldraugh.

On Wednesday, January 31, Detectives and Deputies served a search warrant at a residence on Eagles Nest Dr. in the Buck Grove area. During the execution of that search warrant, a wanted fugitive was located and arrested. Methamphetamine, marijuana, and numerous items of drug paraphernalia were seized.

Continuing later Wednesday, Detectives searched another residence where they located a large amount of methamphetamine, along with items associated with the sale and trafficking of methamphetamine. 

On Thursday, February 1, Detectives searched a residence and seized heroin, methamphetamine, and multiple items of drug paraphernalia. 

All told, Sheriff’s Office units seized approximately six ounces of methamphetamine, six grams of heroin, 1.5 pounds of marijuana, one firearm, numerous items of paraphernalia, scales, and multiple items involved in the trafficking of controlled substances this week.  The Meade County Sheriff’s Office will continue to vigorously attempt to apprehend and prosecute all individuals involved in the trafficking of controlled substances.
