According to Nicholasville Police, officers with the Nicholasville-Jessamine County drug task force executed a search warrant Friday morning at a travel trailer parked in the driveway at 1007 Clyde Drive.

The location, police said, was the site of a number of complaints about drug activity to both Nicholasville Police and the Jessamine County Sheriff’s Office.
