Middlesboro police hit the streets before dawn arresting more than one dozen people on drug related charges.

Police say for every person in handcuffs they take off the streets means less crime.

Officers say most crime is connected to drugs.

"People that have an addiction, they usually resort to theft to support that drug habit. So when they go to a house or a neighborhood to buy drugs... you are bring thieves in your neighborhood to buy drugs," said Tom Busic with Middlesboro police.

Police say doing drug roundups not only helps control the drug problem, but it cleans up the area.

Police consider this roundup a success and say they will arrest those that they did not find... eventually.
