DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office deputies, investigators, and Drug Task Force, with the help of several other law enforcement agencies, arrested more than two dozen people in the Kilpatrick area on Friday.

Spokesman Tyler Pruett said the arrests were made as a result of traffic stops and warrants served until the early morning hours. The charges ranged from possession of controlled substances to driving while under the influence.

“This is a much needed tactic for law enforcement in this county,” DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said in the press release. “Visibility is a deterrent for crime and we plan to continue these saturation operations across the entire county.”
