(SEYMOUR) – Seymour police arrested two Kentucky men and seized 63 fentanyl patches, 80 grams of crystal meth, 160 pills, and around $800 cash during a traffic stop on I-65 near Uniontown Thursday afternoon.
Police say the street value of the fentanyl patches was more than $6,000 each patch sells for $100 on the street. Fentanyl patches are used to treat patients in chronic pain or terminal illnesses. Those that use the patches illegally will cut them into quarters for use.
Seymour police were assisted by the Bartholomew County Joint Narcotics Enforcement Team and Drug Enforcement Agency of Indianapolis due to the number of drugs seized.
Police arrested 33-year-old Curt Barnett, 33, of Louisville, Kentucky, on felony charges of dealing a Schedule II drug and dealing meth and 37-year-old Charles Fix, also of Lousiville, on felony charges of possession of meth.
Police say this investigation is ongoing and may lead to additional arrests.
