BULLITT COUNTY, Ky. (WHAS11)—The Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force completed another drug bust on Monday.

The Drug Task Force executed a search warrant and seized approximately one pound of marijuana and $31,000.

The investigation began seven months ago.

The Sheriff’s Department did not release any information about names or addresses to protect the integrity of the investigation.

This is the fifth big bust for Bullitt County authorities in the last two months.

Police busted the operator of Gilberts Pay Lake for distribution of thousands of pills and all this merchandise believed to be stolen.

Then the owner of a tattoo parlor was arrested and charged in connection with drug trafficking.

On May 1, a marijuana grow operation was discovered in a Mount Washington man's home.

Police say some of these cases are connected and dozens more arrests are expected in a larger ring.
