DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Edmondson said,  “we cannot stress enough how these tips from concerned citizens helps us in making these drug arrest.

“When citizens call or email in tips we will start an investigation, so we may not make an arrest right away but as the investigation develops and we have enough evidence then we can make an arrest. So please keep calling in tips and be patient because sometimes these investigations may take a little time for us to make an arrest,” said Edmondson.

“Our website is a major asset for citizens to make these tips. Go to www.dekalbcountysheriff.org to look up current inmates or submit tips through our tip line,” he said.
