Undercover Investigation Leads to Over a Dozen Drug Charges

Law enforcement officers in Dubois County served drug dealing arrest warrants Monday for drug dealing offenses that originated as early as August 2018.

At that time, a Detective in the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics division began conducting a series of undercover drug buys for the latest drug dealing warrant service.

That detective was joined by a Narcotics Detectives with the Jasper and Huntingburg Police departments.
