Law enforcement in Christian County continue to wage war against drug activity in the community.
U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky, David Hale recently traveled to Hopkinsville to make a joint announcement concerning the seizure of hundreds of pounds of illegal drugs and the arrests of individuals involved in the criminal activity.
Hale says without the partnership between federal, state and local agencies the massive drug busts would not have been possible and that Christian County is a model area for other agencies to emulate especially when it comes to partnering up with other organizations to eradicate drugs in a community.
Hopkinsville Police Chief Guy Howie adds in addition to conducting drug busts throughout the city, officers are going to schools to talk to students about the dangers of drug use.
U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky, David Hale says he hopes the recent drug busts and local efforts to eradicate drugs in the area will send a clear message to drug dealers that they are not wanted in the community.
