Multiple Drug Arrest Made In Perry County

Operation UNITE officials say they have been watching drug activity in an area of Perry County for three months and Thursday, they made 11 arrests and three search warrants during a hot spot enforcement effort.

UNITE officers and local Perry County law enforcement made drug related arrests in the Busy, Big Willard, and Yerkies communities. Officials on the scene say people were approaching the property with drugs in their possession, even as the bust was in progress. It didn't take long for officers to find evidence.

UNITE says they expect to find more drugs on the scene and still have 4 more warrants to issue. Those arrested were processed at the Rural Law Enforcement Center. UNITE officials also talked to neighbors about turning their community around, and we'll have more on how they plan to help the Busy community tonight at 11.
