After Complaints in Latonia Lakes, Woman Charged with Trafficking Meth

A woman was arrested and charged with trafficking methamphetamine after complaints from neighbors in Latonia Lakes.

The Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force thanked the small Kenton County community for its "diligence" when it made the announcement on Friday.

Katrina Duncan was stopped for a traffic violation in Boone County after investigators learned that she was allegedly making a trip back from Louisville where she is accused of purchasing meth.

Investigators said Friday that Duncan regularly traveled to Cincinnati and Louisville to acquire an ounce of meth.

During the traffic stop in Boone County, multiple grams of meth were found inside Duncan's vehicle, investigators said.

She was charged with second degree trafficking meth amphetamine, less than two grams. That is a class C felony that carries a sentence of 5 to 10 years if guilty.

The Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force said that it and the Kenton County Police Department had received complaints about drug trafficking in Latonia Lakes, prompting the investigation.
