Today the Johnson County Sheriff's Office and Franklin Police Department conducted a drug round up involving over 50 suspected drug dealers. Multiple agencies from Johnson County, Marion County and the US Marshals assisted in conducting the warrant sweep.
I am very proud of the work that has been done to take these individuals off the street.
The citizens of Johnson County need to feel safe and we need to be very vigilant in keeping our children safe from these individuals who deal in illegal narcotics.
Our work isn't complete and we will continue to work diligently to make Johnson County safe.
