Kentucky State Police is betting high on a program targeting prisoners.

The agency is handing out decks of playing cards featuring cold cases in hopes of generating new leads.

Since 2010, the agency has distributed more than 8,000 decks and followed up on hundreds of leads.

Trooper Michael Webb says the effort has helped crack three out of 52 cases so far. While that may not seem like a lot, Webb says it is.
