ATHENS (WATE) - The McMinn County Sheriff's Office said a major drug operation resulted in eight arrests on Thursday afternoon, and deputies seized a meth lab and marijuana plants.

It was a county-wide crime suppression event dubbed "Wipeout 2." A similar operation was held earlier this year.

"Aggressive enforcement is a key element in our efforts against drugs," added Sheriff Joe Guy. "We will continue these operations to hunt down drug traffickers in McMinn County."

The suspects taken into custody include: Michael J. Roberts, Nicole Faye Jack, Kenneth D. Fox, Kelly Tallent, Christopher Cole, Cody Lloyd, Pam Moses and Gregory "Sloopy" Millsaps.
