Crime

UPDATE (01/31/18 5:17 p.m.):

Sheriff Adam Gissy said 11 of the 12 people Lewis County deputies moved to arrest in a round up this morning are now in custody.

Deputies in Lewis County try to make similar arrests every so often to send a message to dealers in the county.

“The logic behind this is to send a message to the community that we’re out here actively trying to make it a better place to live and visit, and secondly we want to send a message to the drug dealers that perhaps you should stop,” said Gissy.

Deputies are still searching for the last person remaining on the list.
