On October 29, 2018 members of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office along with several other law enforcement agencies served arrest warrants on individuals related to an ongoing investigation labeled Operation End of Summer Heat.

Over the course of the last several months the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division along with the assistance of other local, state and federal law enforcement partner agencies have conducted numerous drug investigations, targeting drug dealers in and around Clark County.

Throughout the operation law enforcement concentrated their efforts primarily on methamphetamine and heroin distribution due to the opioid epidemic that is plaguing cities and towns across the United States.

Law Enforcement was able to disrupt several large scale drug trafficking organizations, mid-level drug dealers and street level drug pushers and many of those investigations are still on going.

Several drug dealers during the operation were taken off the street and arrested at an earlier time for various reasons such as but not limited to, firearms violations, endangering children by bringing them to drug deals, and transient dealers coming to Indiana from other states.

Through the duration of the operation law enforcement has seized several thousand dollars in illegal narcotics, cash, vehicles and firearms.

This operation has at this point led to four federal indictments with others pending and in excess of twenty others charged at the state level with various felonies.

“I made a promise when I became Sheriff to seek out and arrest drug dealers within our community” stated Sheriff Jamey Noel. “Today, I’m proud to show you the results of our narcotics division and other assisting police agencies from our End of Summer Heat operation.”
