An old drug is sweeping through Louisville and portions of northern Kentucky, and local officials worry it soon will become a problem in Hardin County.

Kentucky State Police analyzed 1,074 samples of heroin during the first three quarters of 2012, marking an increase of more than 100 percent since 2010 when 451 heroin samples were recorded.

In northern Kentucky, heroin-related cases now exceed those involving pain pills, according to KSP.
