Posted by Noah Stubbs - email

HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) - There's been a major drug bust in Hopkins County after a 20 month long investigation.

Detectives say they found over 150 vials of anabolic steroids and items used to manufacture and distribute controlled substances at the home of 35-year-old Adam Parker.

Authorities say Parker was distributing anabolic steroids in Hopkins and surrounding counties.

"One of our major concerns was keeping it out of the high schools, to enhance the performance of younger athletes," Detective Shawn Bean said.

The investigation is on going and authorities say more charges and more arrests are likely.
