More than one pound of meth, 250 Xanax pills recovered in Letcher County drug bust

Officials with Letcher County Sheriff’s Office say their deputies teamed up with Kentucky State Police on a major drug bust Thursday night.

We’re told an attempted traffic stop in the Millstone area led to a chase through Sergent and Millstone before the driver stopped the car, got out and attempted to run off before deputies caught the man, later identified as Kenneth Fisher.

A search of his car revealed more than one pound of meth, 250 Xanax pills and more than $4,000.

Fisher faces charges of drug trafficking, fleeing and evading and one charge for non-legible license plates. Additionally, he had two felony warrants out of Pike County.

He is being held at the Letcher County Jail.
