HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – A Hopkins County man has been arrested in connection with a large-scale drug trafficking investigation.

27-year-old Megan Boucher is charged with trafficking meth and promoting contraband.

Madisonville-Hopkins County Vice/Narcotics Unit and KSP located Boucher on Old Nortonville-White Plains Rd. in White Plains.

Authorities say she had three active warrants out of Hopkins County and has been wanted since the spring.

Those warrants stem from a large-scale meth drug trafficking investigation conducted by Madisonville-Hopkins County Vice/Narcotics Unit, KSP and the FBI last fall.

Boucher was arrested for trafficking meth during that investigation.

According to law enforcement, Boucher had suspected crystal meth on her when they took her in.

While being booked into jail, police say staff found more suspected crystal meth on her.

Boucher is being held in the Hopkins County Jail on an $8,000 cash bond.

35-year-old Willie Bivins, Albany, KY, was also charged with trafficking meth. He was also charged with an active warrant out of Adair County.

Bivins is being held on a $5,000 cash bond.
