Kentucky State Police arrest 18 after drug roundups in Carroll, Trimble and Gallatin Counties

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky State Police say they -- along with the Carrollton Police Department and the U.S. Marshal Fugitive Task Force -- arrested 18 people after drug roundups in Carroll, Trimble and Gallatin Counties.

According to a news release, law enforcement officers served arrest warrants on 13 suspects who were indicted on charges of trafficking heroin, methamphetamine and prescription narcotics. Five other individuals were arrested for other charges.

Our cameras were rolling when one man came out of a home in Gallatin County with a gun.

At that home, Troopers arrested three people in addition to the suspect wanted on the indictment warrant. Jill Beers, age 35, was arrested as part of the drug roundup, according to police. She's accused of trafficking in heroin.

However, it wasn't Beers who initially came out of the home, and was spotted by our WDRB photographer. It was 37-year-old Richard Marksberry, who was carrying an gun.


"Who are you looking for," Marksberry asked our photographer.
"Did you just wake up or something," our WDRB photographer replied.
"Yeah," Marksberry replied.
"I think they're looking for you," the WDRB photographer replied.

That's when authorities walked up to the man.

"Where's Jill at," a KSP trooper asked.
"She's in the house," Marksberry replied.
"We need to talk to her, but she needs to come out here. Is anybody else in the house," the KSP trooper asked.
"Yes, there's other people in the house. You don't need me do you," Marksberry asked.
"No, but we're taking this," the trooper said as he took the gun Marksberry was holding.

Police say Troopers found several marijuana plants growing in pots outside of the home. After searching the home, officers allegedly found $5,000 cash, six grams of methamphetamine, three grams of heroin, 10 firearms, 32 marijuana plants and 105 marijuana seedlings.

Both Beers and Marksberry were arrested. Two children living inside were released to family.

"That's another reason we try to do this- just try to break that cycle," said Trooper Brad Arterburn.

Authorities were looking for 20 people in the drug roundup. All of the suspects had warrants for trafficking in meth, heroin, or prescription pills.

Authorities say with a crackdown on prescription pills, they continue to see more and more cases involving heroin.

"If you went out you could probably get heroin easier than you could get marijuana right now. It's become that big," said Trooper Arterburn.


Trooper Brad Arterburn says while drug roundups like this one certainly won't stop the ongoing problem, he says it does help to put a dent in it.

Of the original 20 indictment warrants, police say seven individuals were not located. All but one of those arrested were lodged at the Carroll County Detention Center.
