TAZEWELL (WATE) - Officers conducted a drug roundup Friday in Claiborne County as they try to get more than 60 offenders off the streets.

The Claiborne County Grand Jury returned over 100 indictments last week, involving more than 60 people. Most of them were booked on drug charges.

Sheriff David Ray says the suspects have been under investigation for months, and he hopes the arrests are making the community safer.

"This is something that Claiborne County needs, and we will continue to do. This makes us over 1,400 cases made here in Claiborne County in the last five years," the sheriff said.

He also says they need members of the community to come forward with information that will help them fight the growing drug problem. They say anyone who knows about illegal activity can remain anonymous.
