CHIPLEY – Washington County Drug Task Force ended “Operation Winter Roundup” just before Christmas with more than 20 drug charges. 13 of those arrested are charged with the sale of drugs.
Comprised of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Chipley Police Department, the task force ended the investigation with 15 arrests.
“We realize that we are not going to arrest our way out of the drug epidemic plaguing our nation and our county,” said Washington County Sheriff Kevin Crews, “but being vigilant in our pursuit of making our county the safest place to live, work, and play in is something we will continue to strive towards every day.”
Operation Winter Roundup focused on the illegal sale of narcotics within the county. As in previous sting operations, many purchases were secured during the extensive undercover investigation.
Chipley Police Chief Scott Thompson spoke of the importance of a well-balanced and safe place to live.
“As we raise our families in this county, we all see the importance of making sure our communities, schools, and places of worship all hold a safe haven for our children and those that we love,” said Thompson.
“Combating crime within the City of Chipley and within Washington County is much more than just making arrests,” added Crews. “It is providing that haven for our citizens that is so important.”
