Sheriff Rick Clark hosted a news conference this morning for all media outlets regarding the culmination of an 8 ½ month, undercover drug operation from May of 2017 to this month. A total of 37 charges are being brought against 13 individuals targeted as mid to upper level methamphetamine distributors.
Sheriff Clark stated …
“It is very important to emphasize to our communities that these subjects are not just “users” of illicit drugs but that they have been identified as being involved at a higher level in the structure that feeds the meth epidemic that unfortunately over time has taken a foothold in Pickens County. These individuals are believed to be some of the primary providers of methamphetamine to our citizens that have been absorbed into a life of drugs”.
