The Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office and Plaquemine Police Department arrested 31 people Wednesday and booked them into the parish prison on various drug-related charges.
Wednesday’s roundup, “Operation Prescribed Justice Refill,” comes on the heels of Sheriff Brett Stassi’s 2013 drug sting, “Operation Prescribed Justice.”
“After the first roundup, I told Iberville residents that we would not stop going after drug dealers, and we will not stop now. This will continue to be an area of emphasis for us,” Stassi said in a news release Wednesday.
The suspects were booked into the Iberville Parish jail on various distribution charges that included marijuana, crack cocaine and prescription medications.
Stassi said the department still has warrants for another 18 suspects in the most recent investigation.
