The arrests were a result of 22 different charges, including sale of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of either a park, school or church. Two vehicles were seized, as well as 11.1 grams of crack cocaine and $1,279 in cash.

The arrests are part of an ongoing effort and longtime commitment of Franklin County Sheriff Mike Mock to rid our communities of illegal drug activities.
