Heroin is starting to move into southern and eastern Kentucky, according to the drug task force 'Operation UNITE.'

UNITE put out a statement Friday saying that the recent crackdown on prescription drug abuse is causing people to switch to heroin, which is cheaper and easier to get.

Lexington police have already noticed this problem, and the mayor has created a task force to deal with it.
