“Operation Lake Ice” began in 2017, with the first phase ending with 21 arrests.

According to the release, 75 officers from 21 different agencies, including several from Region 8, gathered at the sheriff’s office at 5 a.m. for a briefing before heading out to make the arrests during the second phase of the operation.

“We have to do something,” Deputy Brandon Long said. “We have to combat the problem and this is the only way that we know to do it.”

Seven suspects remain on the run and deputies plan to add those seven to Cleburne County’s Most Wanted list.

“Stop dealing, leave Cleburne County or prepare to go to jail because we’re coming for you.,” Sheriff Chris Brown warned.
