Another Drug Bust
Local and state authorities arrested 32 people targeted in an ongoing drug investigation in Wise County on Thursday, according to the county’s commonwealth’s attorney’s office.
The investigation, code-named “Operation Street Sweeper,” has nabbed more than 400 people in nine mass arrests since April 2006. It targets such illegally used and sold prescription drugs, such as hydrocodone, as well as marijuana and cocaine.
A total of 63 people were indicted by a multi-jurisdictional grand jury for Thursday’s sweep, according to a news release from Wise County prosecutor Ronald K. Elkins.
“It takes a massive amount of work and investigation to arrest 63 drug offenders, and these police officers should be commended for their hard work and sacrifices,” Elkins said in the release.(LINK)
