Hempstead and Nevada Counties drug task force sees progress


Law enforcement agencies across Arkansas say they’re having great success with drug task forces.

In two months officers in Hempstead and Nevada Counties seized more than eight thousand dollars, fire arms, drug paraphernalia and made 44 arrests.

They created the Eight North Task Force to focus on the distribution, sale and transportation of illegal narcotics.

“It’s been a very successful operation. We’re investigating drugs everyday and we appreciate the publics help on tips,”Sheriff James Singleton,Hempstead County.

Part of the money used to fund the task force comes from drug money confiscated during arrests and forfeited by the court.
