WASHINGTON COUNTY - Amidst hurricane preparations and the impending uncertainty of evacuees into the county, Washington County Drug Task Force did not slow down.

The End of Summer Clean Up, an extensive undercover narcotics investigation ran collaboratively by Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Chipley Police Department, resulted in 24 arrests. Nine subjects are still at large.

A vast majority of the arrests made during this investigation are for the sell of methamphetamine.

“By targeting the dealers in our county, the Drug Task Force is going to the root of the problem,” said Washington County Sheriff Kevin Crews. “With each arrest that is made, we are seeing the amount of thefts, burglaries, and violent crimes decreasing.”

Undercover operatives were utilized throughout the investigation providing for many successful narcotics transactions.

“The amount of information that has been received by the public has solidified the success of this investigation,” said Crews.

Several programs and facilities are available to those battling an addiction. Sheriff Crews is urging those that are facing these addictions to seek help.

“Our families are our greatest asset and the children of our county are our hope for the future so we must act now to ensure their success,” said Crews

“We want everyone that is affiliated with the use, sell, or possession of any illegal narcotic to know that the members of the Drug Task Force are actively pursuing them,” said Chipley Police Chief Scott Thompson.
