Task force’s Operation Summer Sweep nets nearly three dozen drug arrests

38

 Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington says detectives with the Bossier Sheriff’s Office and Bossier City Police Department rounded up nearly three dozen drug violators in mostly unrelated cases during Operation Summer Sweep Tuesday.

       “Our officers on the Bossier Combined Narcotics Task Force did a superb job in capturing 32 persons, most of whom were wanted on felony drug charges of possession and distribution of cocaine, marijuana and meth,” said Sheriff Whittington. “Operation Summer Sweep was a joint effort to clean up the streets of Bossier Parish, and the end-of-summer roundup shows that we will not tolerate those who want to infest our neighborhoods and children with drugs.”
