“The efforts of the Narcotics Task Force have been very successful since its inception,” said Sheriff Barry Faile. “Although many activities were curtailed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the drug trade did not slow down. Overdoses are a daily occurrence, and people in our county are dying from using illegal drugs. Task force agents are constantly conducting these undercover operations and will continue to seek arrest warrants for folks in our community who possess, use and distribute drugs.”
According to authorities, most of the people bonded out of jail, but eight remain in the Lancaster County Detention Center on drug charges or other unrelated charges.
Anyone with information about this or any other case is asked to call the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office at 803-283-3388.
No other details have been released.
