YOU WOULD HAVE A BIG SMILE TOO IF YOU GOT OUT OF THE COUNTY GRAYBAR HOTEL AFTER GETTING CAUGHT WITH THIS MUCH ILLEGAL STUFF (AND BEING ALSO A SERIOUS CONVICTED FELON): SASHA JAN SWORD, 35, OF VIRGIE, KY., WHO WAS ARRESTED BY KENTUCKY STATE POLICE AFTER AN INVESTIGATION YIELDED THE DISCOVERY EVIDENCE OF A MAJOR DRUG DEALING OPERATION AT HER HOME.
A well known southeastern Kentucky female criminal with a significant crime history is back in trouble again, after being incarcerated in prison for several years, though on her latest arrest on serious charges, she was allowed to bond out of jail a few days later.
On Friday, June 16, troopers from the Kentucky State Police Post 9 in Pikeville, KY. arrested a Pike County, KY. woman after a large amount of illegal drugs were discovered at her residence in the Virgie area community of Pike County.
Kentucky State Police went to the home of Sasha Jan Sword, 35, of Virgie, KY., who was the subject of a drug investigation. After troopers conducted a “knock-and-talk” at the home’s front door, and then getting her permission to search the residence, the troopers, while conducting a search of the home, approximately one pound of suspected Methamphetamine, two ounces of suspected Fentanyl, and twelve ounces of hallucinogenic mushrooms were seized. Additionally, quantities of Marijuana, drug paraphernalia, twelve (12) firearms (3 shotguns & 9 handguns, of which were one revolver and 8 semi-automatic pistols), and approximately $4,000 in cash were seized from Ms. Sword’s residence.
