Lewis County deputies have arrested 12 people on drug charges.

Marsha Davisson, Laura Eagle, Willard Hayhurst, Edward Heath, Eliza Taylor, William Justice, Brandi Leggett, Sherry Lowther, Susan Thayer, Jordan Watson, Steven Butcher, Jr. and Donald Newlon III all face charges related to possession and delivery of drugs.

Deputies say Davisson, Eagle, Hayhurst, Heath, and Taylor each sold controlled substances to confidential informants, including meth, hydrocodone, Klonopin, and oxycodone.

Sheriff Adam Gissy said the roundup was designed to send a message to drug criminals in the county.

"It's not going to be tolerated here. Just because you've flown under the radar for such a long time really means nothing. We're going to continue to be aggressive and I can perceive several more of these in the near future," Gissy said.

We're working to get information on the other arrests.

Gissy said another arrest is expected.
