DEKALB COUNTY, Ala. (WAFF) - The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office says a drug roundup operation on Wednesday netted 50 arrests in one day.

The operation was a planned warrant roundup and also involved saturation patrols and investigating citizen complaints of drug activity.

A large portion of the charges were for distribution of controlled Substances, which the warrants were obtained by the Narcotics and Interdiction Team after months of investigation.

Deputies say many individuals were arrested on new charges that resulted from traffic stops and narcotics found while serving the existing arrest warrants.

Local and state agencies assisted the DCSO with the operation including the Ider Police Department, Henagar PD, Mentone PD, Sylvania PD, Valley Head PD, Powell PD, Fyffe PD, Crossville PD, Alabama Pardons & Paroles, and ALEA Region F Drug Enforcement Task Force.

“We certainly did not take a break during the COVID-19 shutdown,” said DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden. “Our narcotics and interdiction team continuously developed new leads and built these cases. Much of the information used to build these cases started by information developed from arrests by our deputies and local police officers.”

“And as always, this operation was a success due to the support from our local and state agencies. I can’t think them enough for their hard work and commitment to helping us cleanup this county,” he said.
