Over 50 Arrested Wednesday in Round Up Operation

On Wednesday (July 15, 2020) Law Enforcement in DeKalb County conducted a narcotics round up operation which resulted in over 50 arrests in one day.

The operation was a planned warrant round up, and also involved saturation patrols and investigating citizen complaints of drug activity. A large portion of the charges were for Distribution of Controlled Substances, which the warrants were obtained by the Narcotics and Interdiction Team after months investigating drug activity in our county.

Many individuals were arrested on new charges that was the result of traffic stops and narcotics found while serving the existing arrest warrants.

Local and state agencies assisted the DCSO with the operation including the Ider Police Department, Henagar PD, Mentone PD, Sylvania PD, Valley Head PD, Powell PD, Fyffe PD, Crossville PD, Alabama Pardons & Paroles, and ALEA Region F Drug Enforcement Task Force.

DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the operation: "Months of hard work has truly paid off, and our county is a better place because of it! This operation was well organized and exceeded our expectations."

"We certainly did not take a break during the Covid-19 shutdown. Our narcotics and interdiction team continuously developed new leads and built these cases. Much of the information used to build these cases started by information developed from arrests by our deputies and local police officers," he said.

"And as always, this operation was a success due to the support from our local and state agencies. I can't think them enough for their hard work and commitment to helping us cleanup this county," said the sheriff.

"God Bless!" Concluded Sheriff Welden.
