Sheriff: 4 arrested as part of ongoing meth trafficking investigation
Four people were arrested in Pulaski County Tuesday after deputies saw one of them trafficking meth in a parking lot.
Sheriff's deputies say the arrest stems from an investigation that began in October after reports that Tyler Rose, 27, of Somerset was trafficking meth into the county.
Investigators stopped Rose in a McDonald's parking lot when they say they saw him "conduct a transaction" and immediately pulled him over, finding nearly eight grams of meth. He was charged with first-degree trafficking of a controlled substance.
Upon searching the vehicle, they also recovered another four ounces of suspected meth, two handguns, drug paraphernalia and $1,500 in cash.
A passenger, Emily Holman, 27, of Lancaster was also arrested on an active warrant.
Deputies also searched Rose's home and found $1,000 in counterfeit money. Two more people, Christy Oiler, 48, and Charles Oiler, 45, both of Somerset, were arrested on outstanding warrants.
The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office expects to make more arrests as part of this investigation.
