Three more Campbellsville residents have been arrested and charged with selling drugs as part of a Kentucky State Police effort to get drugs off the street.
Nineteen Taylor County residents were charged with drug crimes as part of the effort. A few indictments against those charged remain sealed at press time.
KSP initiated Operation Black Friday early Friday, Nov. 1, morning. In all, 479 people around the state have been charged with committing 774 crimes. The effort amounts to the largest drug roundup in the agency's history.
Arrest warrants for the 19 Taylor County residents were issued last month, though they were sealed after a Taylor County grand jury issued indictments against the defendants on Oct. 22.
A grand jury can seal an indictment if there is a possibility that the accused will try to evade police.
The three defendants most recently arrested include:
• Brittany M. Reardon, 26, of 206 Mays Court, was charged with first-degree selling less than 4 grams of cocaine.
Bond was set at $15,000 cash. If convicted, Reardon could be sentenced to as much as five years in prison.
• Billy G. Wallace, 44, of 110 Jonathan Drive in Campbellsville, was charged in three separate indictments with two counts of first-degree selling less than 4 grams of cocaine, first-degree selling 10 or more dosage units of a controlled substance and three counts of being a first-degree persistent felony offender.
Bond in all three cases was set at $20,000 cash and Wallace was ordered to not consume any illegal drugs or alcohol or violate the law. If convicted in all three cases, he could be sentenced to as much as 20 years in prison. The charge of being a convicted felony offender could increase any sentence he might receive.
• Robin L. Cox, 42, of 110 Jonathan Drive, was charged with first-degree selling less than 4 grams of cocaine.
Bond was set at $10,000 cash and Cox was ordered to not consume any illegal drugs or alcohol or violate the law. If convicted, Cox could be sentenced to as much as five years in prison.
• An indictment is a legal accusation only. It does not establish guilt.
