Cocaine Bust in Kentucky May be the Largest in State's History

New Castle, KY – The U-S Drug Enforcement Administration says
Kentucky State Police may have seized the biggest
cocaine shipment in Kentucky history. The shipment
was interrupted Saturday in Henry County.

Investigators aren't saying where the shipment was
headed, but they have made two arrests in the case.
The seizure came after a traffic stop on Interstate 71.

Records in U-S District Court in Lexington show that two
men, Jaime Bustamante and Renae Ness were arrested
and charged with possession and intent to distribute
363 kilograms of cocaine. The two suspects are expected
to appear in court tomorrow.
