Local Authorities Make Drug Arrests
Local, State, and Federal Law Enforcement officials executed arrest and search warrants Tuesday morning. Martin Police along with state and federal agents from the ATF, FBI, DEA, THP, and TBI served numerous arrest warrants and search warrants on various individuals and locations in the Martin Weakley County area.
The drug operation has been the result of a multi-jurisdictional undercover investigation over the span of approximately two years. Teams of officers hit the ground at approximately 6:00 a.m. Tuesday morning and the operation has resulted in the arrest of several individuals believed to be known gang members.
The investigation began due to the ever increasing number of drug and gang related incidents which have occurred in the Martin and surrounding area.
