Kentucky State Police troopers are rounding up hundreds of drug suspects in what the state's lead police agency calls the largest one-day drug crackdown in its history.
State police Commissioner Rodney Brewer says the roundup called Operation Black Friday is the result of tips. Among the tipsters was a mother whose son is a drug addict. Brewer says her tips led to the arrest of the alleged drug dealer selling to her son.
Brewer says the charges involve such drugs as marijuana, heroin, prescription drugs and methamphetamine.
