(HANCOCK COUNTY, IN) - A five-month drug investigation resulted in ten people being busted on various narcotics charges Wednesday in Hancock County. Detective Randy Ratliff, with the Greenfield Police Dept., said police found meth, pot, syringes and other drug paraphernalia.

Officers with the Greenfield Police Dept. Hancock County Sheriff's Dept., and the newly-assigned Hancock County Deputy Prosecutor, specializing in narcotics prosecution served arrest warrants on eight of nine people in Hancock and Marion Counties, said Ratliff.

The ninth person may have moved to Jay County, in northeastern Indiana, and investigators are coordinating with Jay County authorities to have her arrested.

While serving these nine warrants, officers located a tenth person wanted on a parole violation warrant and an eleventh person wanted on a probation violation warrant.

Most of the people arrested were charged with conspiracy to deal drugs, and dealing narcotics.
