Sheriff: Greene County is cracking down on drug use


The Greene County Sheriff's Department had a very busy weekend.

Multiple drug arrests were made on both Saturday and Sunday.

Sheriff David Carter said they are aggressively working to combat all drug issues in Greene County.

“They're doing their patrol, if they see anything that looks out of place they're on it,” Sheriff Carter said. “Not only drugs; we're out in the county trying to keep the thefts down. We're just doing everything we can. That's what the people want and that's what we're giving them.”

They made two misdemeanor arrests for marijuana this weekend, and the rest were felony arrests for methamphetamine.

Sheriff Carter said he hopes this sends a message to those doing drugs that it won't be tolerated in Greene County.
