On March 8, 2024, the Kentucky State Police (KSP), alongside the Hopkinsville Police Department, executed a search warrant at the Woodland Heights Apartment complex, uncovering not just the massive stash of Fentanyl but also cocaine, U.S. currency, and drug paraphernalia.

This operation led to the arrest of three individuals: Chermes White, 22, and Gary Barker, 30, both residents of Hopkinsville, along with Anthony White, 27, from Russellville. Their charges include trafficking controlled substances, with the possession and trafficking of more than 10 grams of Carfentanil/Fentanyl derivatives and cocaine, possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and in Anthony White’s case, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of a controlled substance and no registration.

Following their arrest, all suspects were transported and lodged at the Christian County Detention Center in Hopkinsville, facing serious charges that highlight the severity of their alleged involvement in drug trafficking operations.
