“We are very fortunate to have such a great working relationship with all of our Federal, State, and local law enforcement partners. These arrests are just another example of that cooperation.

The Sheriff’s Office is as committed today as we have ever been in the mission to protect our citizens from the plague of drugs.

As I stated during a November press conference regarding “Prison Empire”, an investigation that agents of the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office participated in which culminated in the indictment of fifty-six mid to upper level drug traffickers on one hundred ninety-two criminal counts, combatting the illicit drug trade in Pickens County is of the highest priority. These arrests today are just another example of our agency’s continued commitment to targeting those individuals who continue to spread poison to our citizens.

Rest assured that we will continue working behind the scenes to identify and eradicate those that choose to perpetuate the drug trade in Pickens County.”

– Sheriff Clark
