More Than A Dozen Suspects Arrested During Dubois County Drug Raid

Last updated on Friday, June 6, 2014

(DUBOIS CO.) - Over a dozen suspects have been arrested in a county-wide drug raid in Dubois County Thursday morning.

According to the Dubois County Free Press, the arrests were part of Operation Big Brother, an undercover drug buy operation.

The Free Press says the operation began in July 2013.

As part of the operation, informants made undercover drug buys and as a result several felony arrest warrants for drug dealing charges were obtained by the Dubois County Prosecutor's Office.

Several types of drugs were involved.

Officials say 14 suspects were arrested in Thursday's early morning raid. The raid involved multiple law enforcement agencies. The Department of Child Services also had to be called in because children were present at one of the homes where a suspect was arrested.

Authorities say, as far as they know, the 14 arrested did not work together.

14 News is continuing to follow these developments, and we will have the latest on air, online at 14News.
