GARLAND COUNTY, AR (KAIT/KATV) -

Twenty-five arrests have been made after multiple law enforcement agencies joined forces Monday in a warrant round-up across Garland County.

According to KATV, authorities split into teams and served warrants to people now facing drug-related charges including burglary, theft, and forgery.

Sixty-six grams of methamphetamine, 39 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, a shotgun, a sawed-off shotgun, and a defaced handgun were seized by police.

This round-up is part of an initiative the county has been working on for years.

The 18th Judicial District East Drug Task Force, under the direction of the prosecuting attorney, coordinated the event.

A juvenile was also arrested on multiple charges.
