Traffic stop leads to drug bust
A routine traffic stop led to one of the biggest heroin busts in Harrodsburg.
At 5:01 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27, police stopped a black 2003 Mercury Mountaineer on the U.S. 127 Bypass near U.S. 68 East.
A routine check let officers know both occupants of the SUV had outstanding warrants against them for failure to appear. The driver, John Tyler Nicholson, 19, of Nicholasville, had a Fayette County warrant while his passenger, Stephen Tyler Lunsford, 25, of Lexington, had a Garrard County warrant.
