ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) -- A central Kentucky man was indicted for complicity to commit trafficking in medical marijuana that investigators believe was being shipped to Kentucky from Colorado and California.

The Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force arrested 35-year-old Henry Butler last month at his home in Radcliff and he was indicted by a grand jury last Thursday, reported The News-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/12hy1dr).

According to court documents, the U.S. Postal Service seized approximately $14,000 in cash Butler was mailing to California.

Task force director Ron Eckart said investigators noticed a higher quality of marijuana in the area and they seized 2.8 pound of medical-grade marijuana, cash and a handgun during a search of Butler's home.
