Officials arrest 17 people in drug roundup

A nine month drug investigation leads to 17 arrests across two states.

Officials say 16 more arrests are expected in the drug round-up. Investigators seized pills, cocaine and synthetic marijuana.

Ardmore Police Chief says he vows to get drug dealers off the streets.

"I've had a lot of support from both mayors and the city council of Ardmore and a lot of support from the community. They wanted drugs cleaned up here in Ardmore and this is the result of what we've been trying to do for that past two years," Ardmore Police Chief David Whitt.

Ardmore Police, Limestone County Sheriff's Department, the Lincoln County and Giles County Sheriff's Department all assisted in the operation.
