Macon County Drug Sweep Nets 13, Ploice Looking for 3 More

Thirteen Macon residents are behind bars, with police looking for three more. It follows an early morning sweep yesterday, according to Sheriff Robert Dawson. The sweep comes as the result of sting operations set up to make undercover drug buys — an investigation funded by county restitution funds awarded to the department last year. Those arrested were mostly charged with possession, and Dawson says the drugs involved include methamphetamine, marijuana, imitation controlled substances and prescription drugs.
