ORIGINAL

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (6/20/14) — Friday morning 8 a.m. teams of officers from the ATF, Bowling Green Police, FBI, Kentucky State Police, U. S. Marshall's Service and Warren County Sheriff's Department set out to arrest 20 individuals.

These 20 individuals are charged with 69 various felony drug crimes including Engaging in Organized Crime.

The aforementioned charges are a result of undercover investigation conducted over a 6-month period by detectives assigned to the Bowling Green - Warren County Drug Task Force.

DTF received information of Raymond "Steamboat" Burch organizing groups to 'Smurf" pseudoephedrine. The six month investigation revealed he was organizing groups of individuals to drive and/or ride with him to Tennessee and South Central Kentucky to purchase PSE. Most of the individuals were purchasing the maximum legal limit of PSE. Some of the individuals involved had multiple ID's to exceed the legal limit. The PSE was then turned over to Burch who delivered to the "meth cook" manufacturing meth in Edmonson County. The investigation further revealed the "smurfers" were receiving either meth or cash in return for their efforts.

The Drug Task Force is a partnership of detectives from all local, state and federal agencies investigating drug crimes in Warren County. The ATF, Bowling Green Police, Kentucky State Police, FBI, and Warren County Sheriff's Department all assign detectives to the Drug Task Force. These detectives work together to combat drugs in our community.

Our funding is also a partnership of City and County funds, the Federal Byrne/JAG Grant program from the United States Department of Justice and the Appalachia High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area from the Office of National Drug Control Policy.

Below is a listing of those arrested at this time. This listing will be updated as others are arrested.
