Last week the department rounded up almost 30 suspects involved in illegal prescription drug sales. The ATF is working with us on having the case federally prosecuted due to the volume of sales, guns involved, and long criminal hostories of many of the suspects. As I read the names of those arrested I recognized many of them as habitual offenders - for years. With the ATF and US Attorney involved we know there will be some long sentences coming down on them. Bad guys + their guns arrested = a safer community. Good work to our drug unit, ATF and the US Attorney's Office.
