Several law enforcement agencies combined to make multiple drug related arrests on July 6 and 7. The Tallassee Police Department worked in conjunction with the Tallapoosa County Narcotics Task Force, US Marshal Fugitive Task Force, Alexander City Police Department, Jackson Gap Police Department, Tallapoosa County Sheriff’s Department and Dadeville Police Departments to execute  search warrants in the Dadeville and Jackson Gap area.

The search warrant was a result of controlled buys from the suspected dealers. During these two day raids, investigators seized five firearms, a 2002 GMC Yukon and $2,328.00 in cash.

During the month of June, the Task Force made more arrests, seizing approximately 1,600 grams of marijuana, 28 grams of crack cocaine, 20 grams of crystal methamphetamine and $3,100 in cash.

The investigation of the illegal trafficking, distribution and possession of narcotics is ongoing in Tallapoosa County.
