Franklin County Drug Arrests

Over the past three months, Franklin County undercover sheriff's deputies have been on the streets identifying areas where illegal drugs are sold and making drug buys.

Tuesday those three months began paying off.

Authorities say they hit the streets with “Operation Zero Tolerance” around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday.

With 22 warrants to serve, they brought in 14 suspects in just over an hour.

Franklin County’s K-9 Unit played an instrumental role in this investigation leading up to Tuesday’s arrests.

Eleven suspects are facing narcotics sales charges, everything from crack cocaine and marijuana to prescription pills.
