ARREST OPERATION - FRANKLIN COUNTY

On 01/14/2020 numerous law enforcement agencies conducted a narcotics arrest warrant operation in Franklin County and the surrounding area. Investigators with the Franklin County Sheriff's Office and Russellville Police Department assigned to the ALEA Region E Drug Task Force conducted an extensive narcotics investigation in the region with the assistance of other area narcotics units. The investigation was conducted for approximately 1 year and is still ongoing.
