Drug Raid Sweeps Through Fulton
Police say the charges include everything from prescription drug abuse to cocaine use.The police department taped off an area of the city so it would have enough space to accommodate all of the police officers involved in making the arrests.
Officials say making big drug busts like this sends an important message.
"We don't want it, in our communities and in our county," said Robert Craghead, Fulton Mayor. "And so maybe they'll stop, maybe they'll see the errors of their ways if you will."
Jones says this operation says a lot about the Fulton Police Department.
"I think that it shows that we have an active police department, and it really puts a positive spin on the Fulton community," said Jones.
The police department says the size of this bust is about the same size as Fulton's drug raid last April.
Right now, 10 people are in custody.The Fulton Police Department says it will continue making arrests throughout Friday.
