Muhlenberg and Ohio County law enforcement make a big bust. Sheriff's deputies were able to confiscate $15,000 and illegal drugs.

The two departments recently arrested Joseph Lee in Cromwell and took around $8,000 in cash and 28 grams of crystal meth. Another large amount of cash was seized during a traffic stop in Greenville.

Officers say the person behind the wheel, Jennifer Abernathy, is likely closely related to Lee. We're told the investigation is ongoing.
