FRANKLIN PARISH SHERIFF’S OFFICE NARCOTICS INVESTIGATION YIELDS EIGHTY-FOUR ARREST WARRANTS
Franklin Parish Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division issued eighty-four arrest warrants for forty-nine individuals early Monday morning as the result of "Operation How DARE You." These warrants are the result of a multi-month investigation by this office into narcotic trafficking. Numerous individuals are in custody and we expect to arrest those remaining soon.
Of the individuals charged, fourteen are currently active on probation or parole from previous arrests. Bonds range from $15,000.00 to $125,000.00. “This investigation is part of our ongoing effort to disrupt narcotic activity in the parish,” stated Cobb. As in previous investigations resulting in several arrests, the charges range from distribution of synthetic cannabinoid, to distribution of methamphetamine, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, marijuana and various prescription medication. The charges result in drugs being seized through the operation and removed from our streets.
Sheriff Cobb states, “our narcotics investigations are always ongoing. We expect numerous additional arrests will occur throughout the next several months.” The list of those charged will be released soon.
