Lewis County Sheriff aiming to increase drug arrests

Crime

An area sheriff is gearing up to take on drug dealers in a big way in 2019.

Lewis County Sheriff Adam Gissy and his deputies have been investigating drug activity in Lewis County over the fall and winter months, and he said they’re ready to begin cracking down again.

Gissy said he’s been working with the community to build their cases, and that information is critical to each investigation.

“Flow of information is so vital, and we’re very fortunate right now to have some folks in the community that are giving us information and insight that ultimately are going to lead to the arrest of some major drug dealers,” said Gissy.

Anyone with suspicions about drug activity in their area of Lewis County is encouraged to call the sheriff’s department or other local law enforcement.
