Investigators found these narcotics in the vehicle of Imari Lindsey, who was placed under arrest for first-degree trafficking in controlled substance. 

The traffic stop is part of the unit’s regular drug interdiction operation and effort to mitigate the flow of narcotics into Nicholasville.

“Mostly just coming in from surrounding counties, you can’t really pinpoint just one.” said Public Information Officer Sam Wade, “10 years ago, everything was about pills, and we knew those were coming from Florida, but right now, our suspects are coming from surrounding counties.” 

According to the Jessamine County Detention Center, Imari Lindsey was released on a $5,000 cash bond after a preliminary hearing on Wednesday, August 3.
