    Drug Eradication

 

 

            On September 27th DeKalb County Sheriff’s Deputies, Drug and Major Crimes Unit, Fort Payne Police Department, and Geraldine Police Department came together to do an eradication of drugs all over the County and with the help of Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and Alabama National Guard Counter Drug Unit flying their helicopters the eradication was a success. During the eradication they recovered a truck that had been reported stolen 3 days ago in a field covered with tree branches. They also found a little over 1500 plants of marijuana from various locations in the County. The Federal Government states that each mature plant is worth approximately $2000 each.

            Chief Deputy Edmondson say “All of these agencies have worked long hours and has done an outstanding job of ridding our County of these drugs.”
