Dozens Arrested During Drug Roundup

A drug roundup in southern Kentucky landed many suspected drug dealers behind bars early Tuesday morning.

The roundup is the result of a months long investigation by Williamsburg police.

Officers were looking for nearly 70 people suspected of pushing Oxycontin and other drugs. Tuesday morning as part of "Operation Take Back," police moved in on those suspects, while most were still sleeping.

Most of the 68 people arrested were processed at the local convention center. Police say warrants will remain in force for any suspects not located Tuesday.
