Drug roundup in Greenbrier County


GREENBRIER COUNTY (WVVA) - A drug roundup in Greenbrier County takes more than 20 people off the streets after 40 indictments passed through the grand jury on Tuesday, June 10.

Once nighttime came, sheriff's deputies along with state and local police hit the streets. About 23 men and women have been brought in so far, mostly for delivery of controlled substances like oxycodone, hydrocodone, and heroin.

Sheriff Jan Cahill says distribution of prescription drugs is a problem that continues to run rampant. "Greenbrier Valley is no different than anywhere else in the state. It seems like that's been the primary problem from a law enforcement perspective for the last couple of years."

Names of the people caught and those still at large are not being released yet. The grand jury continues today.
