PIKEVILLE — A Detroit man is in jail, after police say he was found with a variety of drugs.


Kentucky State Police received a tip Monday concerning a possible drug transaction from a vehicle on South Mayo Trail. Units with the KSP Post 9 Criminal Interdiction Team arrived at the scene of the reported transaction and witnessed another apparent drug deal.


Officers approached the vehicle, where they made contact with Johnathan G. Estrada, 23, of Detroit. They searched his vehicle and discovered an undisclosed amount of prescription narcotics and what is believed to be cocaine and marijuana.


Estrada was arrested and charged with first-degree drug trafficking, second-degree drug trafficking, third-degree drug trafficking and trafficking in marijuana.


Estrada remains in the Pike County Detention Center on a $100,000 cash bond.


The incident is under investigation by Trooper Zach Bryson.
