Sheriff Randy Seal commented. “These arrests are fine examples of the work being done by our drug task force detectives. Many times, while the rest of us are at home sleeping, they are working to identify and arrest those persons who violate our drug laws. I commend them for their hard work and diligence in getting drug dealers out of our community. As you can tell from the description of the persons arrested, some of these folks appear to be career criminals who have never learned how to live as honest, hard-working citizens. As long as they continue to ply their trade, our narcotics officers will continue to pursue and arrest them. That is our job and we will continue to do it while I am your Sheriff.”
