UPDATE: Missing pharmaceuticals trailer found empty in Kentucky

WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE – A tractor-trailer loaded with narcotic pharmaceuticals stolen Wednesday in Fayette County was found Thursday afternoon near Georgetown, Ky.

The tractor-trailer was hijacked Wednesday at the TA Truck Stop at the interchange of Interstate 71 and U.S 35. A few hours later, the tractor – or cab – portion of the rig was recovered in Clinton County on Ohio 72 near Interstate 71.

Fayette County Sheriff Vernon Stanforth said his office was contacted about the trailer portion of the rig being discovered at a truck stop in Scott County, Ky., about 3 p.m. Thursday.

When it was determined the vehicle had crossed state lines, the Federal Bureau of Investigation was notified and asked to become involved.

FBI representatives joined Scott County Sheriff’s deputies in recovering the missing trailer and now are interviewing witnesses to incidents surrounding the theft and recovery.

The contents of the trailer were missing when authorities discovered the vehicle.

According to law enforcement, the cargo consisted of an undisclosed amount of narcotic pharmaceuticals. The dollar amount of the drugs was not revealed.

The investigation and search for a suspect or suspects continues.  From the Chillicothe Gazette
