PREVIEW: WDRB special report to expose large federal seizures of drugs and cash in Louisville

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Federal agents have recently seized enormous amounts of drugs and cash in Louisville.

Images during recent Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) cases show agents seizing kilos of heroin, a shotgun, and about $300,000 in cash. They've also seized 25 pounds of crystal meth, commonly called ICE.

"We almost have, like, a grim reaper that has been let loose in this city, that is the heroin and opiate abuse epidemic, and our time and attention are focused on the organizations that are peddling that poison in our community," said Jim Scott, DEA Louisville Resident Agent in Charge.

In our Wednesday night follow-up story, WDRB's Valerie Chinn will investigate how the DEA is working to shut down the Mexican drug cartel's pipeline to Kentuckiana.

It airs tonight during our 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts.
