GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WKYT) - Friday was a busy day for Georgetown police. They spent it driving across the city searching for people charged with selling drugs.
The roundup started in the morning and was a continuation of a larger operation that started in the summer. The people targeted are charged with trafficking narcotics, mostly pills.
"We've divided it up and gone and got pockets of people as we have had the warrants signed," said Georgetown Police Chief Mike Bosse.
83 people were charged in the original operation but it's taken some time for all of those cases to filter through the court system. 15 new indictments led to the roundup on Friday.
For police the task of locating all of the suspects is a time consuming one. They say many have moved on or have incorrect addresses on file. But police say the arrests they've made today will impact the drug trade in Scott County.
"By extending this over a longer period of time people in the drug world didn't know who we were coming after," Bosse said.
