Tennessee Police Search For Alleged Drug Dealers

Just across the state line in Claiborne County, Tennessee, police are looking for dozens of suspected drug dealers.

Four teams with four to six officers each are making house calls on suspected drug dealers throughout Claiborne County.

43 people are on the list to be picked up on more than 100 charges.

Officers are looking to seize pills, marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine and even meth.

During the hunt, officers say they have certain advantages and try to make the most of them.

Sheriff David Ray says this is the largest bust in the history of Claiborne County and the third since September, 2006.

Five cars are also on the list of suspected seizures, including a Cadillac and a Corvette.
