14 Arrested in Drug Roundup

A Florida law enforcement agency plans to keep up the heat on drug dealers.

A four-month undercover investigation by Chipley Police nets the arrests of 14 suspects.

Just last year, the department arrested the operators of a local motel for harboring drug dealers.

Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews says many of the suspects are repeat offenders, but the problem of crack cocaine is not relegated to his hometown.

It's a crisis situation in nearly every panhandle community.

Periodically, Chief Crews says his officers will conduct drug round-ups to try and keep drug traffic to a minimum in Chipley.
