Heroin dealers targeted in Athens County drug sweep
(2009-10-22)
(WOUB) - At least 10 Athens County residents have been arrested in a drug sweep that targeted heroin dealers in Athens County yesterday.

Sheriff Pat Kelly says the number could grow.

Officers were still out last night.

And the number does not include other counties - including Hocking - where raids were conducted.

Those arrested here were from Athens, The Plains, Hollister, Millfield, Glouster and Nelsonville.

Kelly says planning for the operation began a few months ago because of the large heroin problem.

He says several police agencies took part.
