Drug Task Force Makes arrests

The Washington County Drug Task Force consisting of the Chipley Police Department and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office reports multiple arrests as a narcotics investigation that spanned several months has concluded.

The investigation included the sale of methamphetamines, marijuana, crack cocaine and controlled substances, as well as an extensive undercover operation involving the sale of synthetic marijuana.

“The Drug Task Force consistently fields complaints in reference to the sale and use of illegal drugs. During this latest roundup, our Task Force performed a concentrated undercover effort based on information that a local convenient store was continuing to illegally sale synthetic marijuana” states Chief Crews. “We had put store managers on notice that the new law was in effect and if sale continued they would be prosecuted. We found a store not in compliance with the law, and that store manager went to jail.”
