Many alleged drug dealers in Jackson County got an unexpected wake up call, Tuesday morning, when police showed up at their front door with a warrant for their arrest.

Overall, WKYT is told that a five month investigation by Jackson County Police and Kentucky State Police led to 36 warrants being issued; the majority of those for crimes related to drug trafficking.

Jackson County Police managed to arrest 23 alleged offenders by Tuesday afternoon.

One of the last stops of Tuesday's roundup was at a home in the Sandgap Community where police seized property and they'll soon be passing that over to Kentucky State Police.

Officers tell us that during Tuesday’s roundup, they confiscated cash and a large amount of drugs ranging from marijuana to heroine. Right now, they say the most popular drug in Jackson County is suboxone.

Police tell us after netting nearly two dozen alleged players in the drug trafficking game, they certainly consider Tuesday’s drug roundup a huge success.

More arrests are expected to be made in connection to the latest investigation.
