Sheriff Adam Gissy indicated in a press release that the arrests were the culmination of investigations that have stretched over the past few months.

“With the aid of concerned citizens; law enforcement personnel were able to address some of those who have been menacing our communities by distributing illegal drugs,” Gissy stated.
“We strongly encourage folks to contact law enforcement if they believe drug deals are occurring in their neighborhoods. Community involvement is pivotal in curbing the drug epidemic facing our county, and country alike.”
