31 targeted for drug conspiracy
Oconee sheriff’s officers are pursuing conspiracy-related drug charges today against as many as 31 suspects. And, by 1:30 this afternoon, 22 of the 31 had already been arrested and sent to jail. It all relates to the proliferation of the highly-addictive drug methamphetamine. But Sheriff Mike Crenshaw said, in this operation, those targeted are not the ones who cook the meth, but who supply the psueudoephrine, the main ingredient for its production.
