Prosecutors say meth cases have tripled in a one year period

PIKEVILLE, Ky. –  Meth arrests in our region have spiked in the past year, which has put extra pressure on police agencies as well as those who prosecute the cases in court. In Pike County alone, the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office has seen the case load of meth cases nearly triple in a 12 month period.   And, unfortunately, Pike Commonwealth’s Attorney Bill Slone says there are no signs that the meth epidemic will ease up anytime soon.
