Pastor and Others Plead Guilty to Federal Drug Charges
Posted January 23rd, 2014 @ 5:59am

ASHLAND, Ky. (WSAZ) -- A former church pastor, along with two other men, pleaded guilty to federal drug charges Wednesday.

Scott Gilliam, Brandon Logan and Michael Scott Logan, all of Olive Hill, were arrested in November. The arrests follow a year and a half long investigation dubbed "A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing".

The men all pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute oxycodone.

Investigators said they operated one of the largest pill trafficking operations in Kentucky.

Officials said they seized more than $1 million in cash and assets and found a large amount of pills at Perry's Branch Holiness Tabernacle Church, where Gilliam was pastor until it closed about a year ago.

“Tens of thousands of pills that have a street value of $40 to $45 each. So you're talking [a] multimillion dollar trafficking organization,” the lead detective of the FADE Drug Task Force said.

No word when the men will be sentenced.
