Federal Roundup In Marion County

Posted: Updated:

Investigators made seven arrests in a drug trafficking operation.

His is just one of seven suspects targeted by federal, state and local authorities in a year long undercover investigation.

Agents say the men and women were dealing mainly in crack cocaine.  They're calling it an armed drug trafficking conspiracy.

We don't have names of the suspects because the federal indictments are sealed, but Marion County Sheriff Bo Burnett says he's familiar with them all.

He says, "I know them all they've been in the system over and over and I'm tickled hopefully they'll be off the street for a while."

Agencies involved are the ATF, TBI, and the Marion County Sheriff's Department.

    A Picture Perfect Start To The Week

    Good Monday.  If you have to have Mondays in your life, this is the kind of Monday you want.  Behind the rain last week we have slightly cooler and much drier air that moved in Sunday and will be with us for the first half of the week.  Today will be mostly sunny with a high of 85;  The average high is 89. Tuesday will be nice again with the high staying in the mid 80s.  We will, however, see some clouds moving through.
