It took three months and numerous arrests, but officers with the Kentucky State Police prevented more than $1 million worth of drugs from ever reaching the streets.

Officers announced late Friday afternoon they were able to bust a narcotic hub at the Ashland Greyhound Bus Terminal. They  made 28 drug arrests, more than 700 grams of heroin and more than 3,200 in prescription medication.

Officers said the alleged drug dealers were using the Ashland Greyhound terminal as a way to traffic illegal drugs between the tri-state area and Detroit, Michigan.
