MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Marshall County investigators tell us an overnight drug bust lead to over 50 people being arrested by 5 o'clock on Thursday morning. 

Investigators say several area police departments and parole agents hit the streets with warrants for approximately 100 people in Marshall County on 115 charges.

The operation began at midnight. The first group of individuals arrested arrived at the jail at 2 a.m.

"There were arrests made in every city. We approached this operation a little different this time than we'd normally had. We'd mixed teams together. It seemed like it was statistically, it worked really great. Everybody knows their own town and made some good arrests and you know to have 53 arrests in one night is amazing. This is the biggest operation that I remember, I've been here 38 years. So, it's huge. Everybody worked really well together and pleased where we're at so far," said Marshall County Sheriff Scott Walls.

This roundup follows an extensive investigation into the distribution of narcotics in Marshall County by sheriff’s investigators. This operation began after a similar roundup in November 2017.

The drug arrests range from marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine.

The individuals listed were picked up overnight by a combined effort of several Sand Mountain area law enforcement agencies.
