Caroline County Sheriff’s Office helps to take down 17 drug dealers in Westmoreland County.

From The Journal:

Seventeen indictments have been issued as a result of a large drug bust in Westmoreland in the Colonial Beach and the Oak Grove areas of the county. It involved 100 officers in a task force which had been in operation for the past four months.

That operation which culminated in the arrests, started Thursday morning at approximately 2:00 a.m. and involved officers from NCIS, King George, Westmoreland, Caroline, the State Police, FBI, Department of Corrections, ABC enforcement, Colonial Beach police, the state aviation med-flight helicopter, and staff from the regional jail, among other units. Arrests involved felonies and misdemeanors for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of prescription drugs and marijuana.

By 4:00 p.m. 15 people had been arrested and processed. Names were to be announced shortly, according to officers in the Westmoreland Sheriff’s office.

    What I loved about this story is that NO ONE seemed phase that the CB Police Chief’s quote after the raid was “They done hit ’em.”

    Kudos the LE for pulling this off & getting dealers of the street, but couldn’t they at least come up with a more educated quote?

  2. Linkage for that story:

    I’m curious if he spat out some snuff after saying that. :)

    Well, every area needs a Buford T. Justice in the local law enforcement. ;)
