Hardin County Man Indicted for Medical Marijuana Trafficking
A Radcliff man has been indicted for complicity to commit trafficking in medical marijuana that investigators believe was being shipped to Kentucky from Colorado and California.
The Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force arrested 35 year old Henry Butler last month at his home. He was indicted by a grand jury last week. According to court documents, the U.S. Postal Service seized about $14,000 in cash that Butler was mailing to California.
Task Force Director Ron Eckart said investigators noticed a higher quality of marijuana in the area and the seized 2.8 pounds of medical grade marijuana, cash and a handgun during a search of Butler's home.
