INITIAL STORY – A multi-agency drug sweep based on a nearly year-long undercover investigation was conducted Wednesday morning across Hardin County, resulting in more than two dozen arrests.
The exact number of arrests is not currently known because the operation is ongoing, yet nearing conclusion. Savannah Police Chief Michael Pitts said to his knowledge there have been 26 arrests so far.
The operation will result in a variety of other charges as well, said Hardin County Sheriff Johnny Alexander, including some gun charges and at least one charge for a violation of sex offender status.
Officers with the Hardin County Sheriff’s Department, Savannah Police Department, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and 24th Judicial District Drug Task Force participated in this morning’s sweep, setting up a command site near the county jail on Water Street.
According to Alexander and Pitts, the undercover investigation phase began in January.
Pitts said about 60 law enforcement officers were engaged in the operation, from the undercover investigation phase to this morning’s roundup.
