Three Arrested After Drug Round-ups

Police arrested Jonathan Durham, Eric Grimes, and Jerry Powell over the past few days, during three drug round-ups.

The busts were all part of a collaborative effort between the Madison County Sheriff's Department, and the Berea Police Department.

The three men arrested are being charged with drug trafficking.

Madison County Sheriff Nelson O'Donnell says getting these men off the streets is necessary to lower the number of drug related deaths in the county each year.

Authorities say the way the drugs were packaged leads them to believe they were made in Mexico, and shipped to the United States.

    It is true he only had to pay $500.00 to get out, Who was the judge that let him out so cheap... That was a slap in the wrist !!!!!

    We need to get rid of the meth, crack, cocaine and the rest of the drug dealers in this town. I strongly believe Nelson will do the job. Get'em Nelson.

    Law Enforcement has done their job, not the court system needs to follow through

    It's good to see the Berea and Richmond Police Departments are working together to help put away people like these. Keep up the good work.
