LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - An Eastern Kentucky man is now behind bars, linked to a federal drug investigation.

A federal grand jury incited Ronald Barksdale in June along with three others.

Prosecutors claim the group worked together to deal meth and pills in Bell and Knox Counties.

Investigators arrested Barksdale Tuesday.

The indictment says Barksdale was previously convicted of conspiracy to distribute cocaine and served 12 months in prison.

If convicted in the new case, he could spend life in prison.
