More Than Two Dozen Arrested In Drug Round-Up

An on-going investigation in the Monterey area has led to the indictment of more than two dozen people on drug charges, many involving the sale and delivery of drugs like morphine and oxycodone. Police say the suspects include several juveniles and a number of adults, ranging in age from 19 to 49 years old. Most live in Monterey, but some also listed addresses in Cookeville and Overton County. The drug investigation also led police to suspects in other cases, including at least one case of burglary. The most recent indictments come just four months after 30 other people in the Monterey area were indicted on similar charges.
