BREAKING NEWS: Drug indictments released

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Arrests were made Thursday on drug indictments that were issued by a Henry County grand jury on Monday and sealed, according to the Henry County Sheriff’s Office.

A total of 69 felony and two misdemeanor state criminal charges were issued on 33 adults in connection with two joint drug investigations in Henry County, a sheriff’s office news release stated. The investigations were between October 2012 and March 2013 and between May 2013 and February 2014. 

Known drug areas of the county were the focus of the operation, and street level dealers and methamphetamine/marijuana manufacturers were the target of both operations, the release stated. Undercover drug purchases, search warrants and vehicle stops occurred in Bassett, Axton, Ridgeway, Collinsville and Spencer, it added.

Quantities of cocaine, methamphetamine, methamphetamine precursor chemicals, marijuana and pharmaceutical pills were seized during these operations, the release stated. Assets connected to narcotics trafficking seized during this operation include a residence, boat, motorcycle, tractor, ATV, electronics, vehicles and U.S. Currency, it added. 

The investigation led to two federal charges of conspiracy to distribute 500 grams of methamphetamine placed on two adult males, the release stated.

The two operations resulted in 69 felony and 2 misdemeanor state criminal charges being issued on 33 adults.

See this site and Friday's Martinsville Bulletin for the list of names of those arrested.
