Somerset, Ky (WVLT) -- Authorities in Kentucky have busted a hundred-thousand dollar racket in pain pills.

"Sheriff's units have been checking, watching residence on breezy hills for drug activity," said Sgt. Troy McLin with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Department.
"Ever since I first moved in her for like 7 or 8 years now there's always been people coming and going and it's only been recently that his had to have started," said Cynthia David.

Authorities found Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Propoxyphene and Morphine.
Gleason has been charged with two counts of drug trafficking with additional charges expected to be filed.
