Police in Pike County made 5 drug trafficing arrests in an operation that was more than a year in the making. Law enforcement teams from the Elkhorn City Police Department, Kentucky State police and the London DEA field office spread out to serve 15 warrants today. Dennis Stiltner, Michael Martin, Jody Scott and Ricky Johnson were arrested today and lodged in the Pike County Detention Center. Police had planned to make more arrests but say some suspects learned of the operation and fled across state lines. Police say their investigation was helped by citizen tips and were able to buy a variety of drugs including Oxycodone, Hydrocodone and cocaine. Another arrest in this case was made November 14, when Jonna Kristina Scott was arrested in court.
