Operation Round-Up:Warrants Served for Drug Violations
On November 1, 2013, the Oelwein Police Department and the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of the Iowa State Patrol and the West Union Police Department; served numerous warrants for drug violations. The warrants stem from an extended narcotics investigation that resulted in arrests of eight people with law enforcement still seeking six individuals on warrants.
During the morning hours, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at 116 5th Avenue S.W., Oelwein. Officers seized controlled substances, marijuana; paraphernalia and a stolen firearm.
“This operation was a success due to the collaborative effort of the Oelwein Police Department, the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, the Iowa State Patrol and the West Union Police Department. Our agencies performed a similar operation several months back and this is a continuation of those efforts. Whether an investigation takes a day, a month or many months; our agencies are committed to providing a safe environment for those that wish to abide by the law. Today’s arrests further our efforts to continue to display our community as inhospitable towards those that wish to sell or distribute controlled substances,” stated Chief Jeremy Logan.
The investigation continues and more charges are pending.
