40 pounds of methamphetamine, 80 bricks of cocaine flown from California to Blue Grass Airport (KLEX)



LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Three people have been arrested after allegedly bringing a large amount of drugs onto a plane that landed at Blue Grass Airport.

Court documents filed in federal court state that a private Hawker 800 jet landed at Blue Grass Airport on Friday afternoon.

Documents say inside the plane was 40 pounds of methamphetamine and 80 bricks of cocaine, weighing one kilogram each.

Investigators said they saw two people take a suitcase off the plane and put it in a BMW, which they later pulled over for a traffic stop.

Documents state a drug search was conducted on the car, where the meth was found inside the suitcase.

Investigators say they found the cocaine inside three more bags of luggage inside the plane.

Documents identified the suspects as Isaac Rosas, Cedric Fajardo, and Robert Carlson.

All three suspects face charges of distributing a controlled substance.

Documents state the plane flew into Blue Grass Airport from California and was on its way to Miami.

Investigators say the suspects were planning on distributing some of the drugs in the Lexington area before getting back on the plane.
