DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the incident: “This operation was another part of our effort to clean up our communities. We’ll continue them across the county to make it difficult for those who break the law to travel our roads.”

“Whether it’s possession of dangerous drugs or drinking while driving, you’ll be placed in cuffs and taken to the DeKalb County Jail. Our citizens should be able to travel our roadways without risking their lives because of your irresponsible actions.”

“God Bless!” Concluded Sheriff Welden.
