The Grainer County Sheriff’s Department arrested over a dozen people and more arrests are expected in a operation to crack down on drug users. The eight-month undercover operation was dubbed “Operation Spring Cleaning.” A total of 30 people were indicted on 53 counts of sale and delivery of meth and opiates. Eighteen persons have been arrested so far. The police department says the hiring of a narcotics officer in 2016 has allowed them to go on a mission to eradicate illicit drugs from the town. The Tennessee Highway Patrol is assisting with the operation.
