Robert Lee Kinney, Jr., 24, of Corinth, was one of 68 people indicted for alleged drug trafficking.

In the pre-dawn hours of Nov. 13, troopers from the Kentucky State Police and law enforcement officers from Carroll and five surrounding counties began rounding up those indicted.

Known as Operation Round-Up, the sting netted 49 arrests by the end of the day.

It was one of the largest drug busts in recent history, said Sgt. Vic Hubbich, KSP supervisor for street-level narcotics. Post 5 in Campbellsburg was aided in the operation by personnel from Post 6 in Dry Ridge and Post 4 in Elizabethtown.

Kinney was lodged in the Carroll County Detention Center.
