KSP: Mt. Sterling tattoo shop front for drugs and guns
MT. STERLING, Ky.(WKYT)- A six-month investigation by several Kentucky police departments led to multiple arrests in a suspected organized crime ring.
Police arrested 49-year-old Robert "Fish" Walters on Thursday night. Walters is the owner of Sullen Ink off Maysville Road in Mount Sterling.
Police say Walters was selling drugs and guns out of his tattoo shop.
According to Kentucky State Police, Walters is the leader of an organization, dealing in "extremely large" quantities of oxycodone. Police say it operated much like a street gang, with duties for each member and even their own colors and insignia.
By the end of the investigation, police say they expect to make nearly 100 arrests.
