Sheriff Harris says, “All of these agencies working together did a great job on this investigation and in making these arrest. We have a zero tolerance drug policy and we will continue this effort in riding drugs from this County.

The children of this County are our future and they need to be protected from these types of situations. We are glad that we can call DHR for their assistance in matters like these and to get those children out of an environment like this.”
