FRANKLIN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The largest drug bust in Franklin County history kicked off a string of arrests that started on Monday.

As of Tuesday, nearly 150 people were booked into the Franklin County Jail. Franklin County Sheriff Shannon Oliver said his department turned over at least 203 drug cases to the Grand Jury as part of an ongoing drug investigation that started in July of 2011.

As of 3:00 a.m. Monday morning, all 203 cases were indicted and officers from local, state, and federal agencies started making arrests.

Charges for those arrested include marijuana, cocaine, meth, and other drugs.

"It's a team effort and we want to send the message as a team as agencies working together we can make a difference and we want people to know we are committed to doing our jobs," said Sheriff Shannon Oliver.

The large number of arrests not only means fewer drugs on the street, but also a boom in business for bail bondsmen.

Bondsman Jerry Johnson has been in the business for 15 years. He camped out at the Jail to get business from families trying to get their loved ones out of jail.

Johnson said lending money is always a gamble but large numbers of arrests like this roundup bring good business.

Johnson said he planned to stay at the jail until he got word that almost all the offenders were caught and booked.
