Another roundup arrest made
PRESTONSBURG - Another arrest was made this week linked to the drug roundup that started July 28.
The roundup was the culmination of undercover investigations by Operation UNITE, Kentucky State Police, Prestonsburg Police Department and the Floyd County Sheriff's Office.
Susan Akers, 24, of Harold was arrested this week by Deputy Greg Clark, with the Floyd County Sheriff's Office, and charged with drug trafficking, according to Sheriff John K. Blackburn.
Law enforcement officials are still looking for individuals to serve with indictments who were not found during the initial roundup last week. All the warrants that were served during the roundup were based on indictments the law enforcement agencies had obtained through undercover operations.
Akers' arrest now makes 31 suspected drug dealers who have been arrested and charged with drug trafficking since the July 28 roundup.
"We are still looking and we will find them," Blackburn said. "I think some of them have gone into hiding and know we are looking for them."
Several people from the roundup are due back in court today, for either arraignment, appointment of an attorney or motion hour.
