More than 49 people have been arrested after an 11-month drug investigation in Shreveport-Bossier.

Agents with the Bossier Combined Narcotics Task Force teamed with other area law enforcement agencies Wednesday to arrest 49 men and women on mostly felony drug charges.

In Aug. 2013, the task force rounded up 32 persons during Operation Summer Sweep to get drug dealers off of the streets of Bossier and northwest Louisiana.

Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington said, “Yesterday’s roundup of drug dealers and users was “Round 2” of our pledge to clean up the streets of Bossier Parish and to show our commitment to ridding our community of illegal drugs.”

Methamphetamine charges accounted for the most arrests at around 60%, with 20% of the arrests for cocaine, 10% for marijuana and 10% for prescription pills such as Lortab and Percocet.
