    Narcotics Unit Breaks Up Detroit-Louisville Drug Ring
    6 People Arrested Overnight

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The Louisville Metro Narcotics Unit said it broke up a Detroit to Louisville drug connection.

    Several arrests were made in Jeffersontown overnight and drugs and luxury cars were seized.

    “It's a very big dent. It's not going to completely stop the problem, but it's a large dent,” said narcotics Lt. Rich Pearson.

    Pearson said six people were arrested in connection with various charges related to an operation that worked out of a Jeffersontown home on Brook Farm Place.

    Arrests were made at an Intown Suites on South Hurstbourne Parkway.

    Tens of thousands of dollars in drugs were confiscated. A gun was also seized.

    “The Ecstasy pills seized, 5,106 (pills), with a street value of about $35,742. We seized 1,491 Opana (pills) with a street value of approximately $89,400,” Pearson said.

    Investigators said members of the group were also trafficking in hundreds of kilos of methylone.

    “(Methylone is) similar to Ecstasy, what we call a stimulate amphetamine, made of the same properties,” said Dr. George Bosse with the Kentucky Regional Poison Control of Kosair Children's Hospital.

    Police said the mastermind of the ring was Reginald Demon Forsythe, who is facing an organized crime charge.

    “He masterminded the obtaining the drugs from Detroit and coordinating the distribution in Louisville," Pearson said.

    Mahogany Calvin, Joseph Thompson, Antoine Gavin, Troy Morris and Darion L. Thodile were also arrested.

    Pearson said residents near the home apparently knew there was something fishy going on.

    “This is a significant quality of life issue because as we were making arrests at the location on Brook Farm Place and talking to subjects, other neighbors, residents actually came out and applauded,” Pearson said.

    Police said they seized four vehicles: a Porsche, a Lincoln, a Bentley and a Hummer.
    More arrests are expected. All six suspects are from Louisville.

    Police said Thodile was not charged in connection with the drug operation, but was instead arrested on an outstanding bench warrant.
