It's been a long process; the result of a 9 month investigation in Madison County.
Tuesday morning authorities set out to serve warrants to more than 50 people.
Most are accused of trafficking drugs like marijuana, cocaine, prescription pills and meth.
Officials say most of the suspects were surprised.
Around half of those arrested were from the Berea area, the other half from Richmond.
Investigators say it is the result of a collaborative effort between the Central Kentucky Drug Task Force, Sheriff's Department and Berea Police.
Sheriff Nelson O'Donnell says, "we wanted a zero tolerance in Madison County for drugs and as you can see that's what we're working toward."
The Sheriff says he feels confident those who were put in handcuffs today will be put behind bars.
About 35 of the more than 50 warrants were served.
