On Friday, March 16th, Morehead PD received a 911 call from an area hotel reporting a male subjected armed with a handgun threatening a female. The caller was able to give a description of the vehicle as it was leaving the area. Morehead PD Officer Josh Ison located that vehicle near Taco Bell on KY 32. During the investigation MPD seized a large amount of crystal meth, heroin, cash and the handgun involved. The street value of the items seized are around $40,000 dollars. Also, we would like to thank the Rowan County Sheriffs for their assistance.
