Drug round-up in Morgan County underway after month-long investigation


East Tennessee law enforcement agencies have announced a drug bust after naming more than three dozen targets in a round-up operation.

The 9th Judicial District Drug Task Force sent seven teams out across Morgan County Friday morning.
It’s all part of a month-long undercover operation looking into drug dealing, including meth heroin and prescription pills.

Our crew has been with the task force since Friday morning. At last check, more than 20 of the 39 suspects had been taken into custody.

We’ll bring you more information as it comes into us from this effort.
