STANFORD — A Garrard County deputy working undercover with a Kentucky State Police drug task force has created trafficking cases against 12 people who were recently indicted by a Lincoln County grand jury.
Deputy Keith Addison testified in all of the cases presented to the grand jury in September. The indictments were not released until last week because they were sealed until all warrants were served upon the defendants, Lincoln County Clerk Teresa Reed said.
Addison has been working with state police’s Drug Enforcement Special Investigations East, a multi-agency taskforce which deploys officers to work undercover outside their normal jurisdictions to make drug cases, Garrard County Sheriff Ronnie Wardrip said.
All of the Lincoln County indictments were obtained using confidential informants to make drug buys. Bonds were set at $25,000 for each defendant.
