A two-month investigation results in the arrest of a Barry man Wednesday.

Pike County Sheriff’s Deputies and the West Central Illinois Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at a residence in Barry, resulting in the arrest of 28 year old Lucas Hively for possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis with intent to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The arrest came after an investigation revealed that Hively was allegedly distributing illegal drugs to adults and high school students.
Hively is in the Pike County Jail awaiting a court appearance. He is currently on parole from the Illinois Department of Corrections.
