Feds claim major meth dealer now behind bars in Floyd County

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Feds say they have busted a major meth dealer.

On Thursday morning, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced that Victor Hugo Ramirez is now behind bars at the Floyd County Jail. Police say during a traffic stop in March, they found 1.5 lbs. of meth under the back seat of his car.

A grand jury just indicted Ramirez for possession of meth with intent to distribute it. Investigators say it's difficult to know how much meth he sold in the greater Louisville area.

"Law enforcement has estimated there was nearly 3 lbs. of meth that has a street value of excess of $140,000," said U.S. Attorney Joseph Hogsett.

Ramirez faces a sentence of 10 years to life in prison and up $10 million in fines, if convicted.
