HAMILTON, Ohio – Secret indictments passed down by the Butler County grand jury on Monday led to a joint drug roundup operation that has arrested a total of 44 people on felony charges.

Some arrests were made in Cincinnati, Dayton, and Fostoria, however most took place in Butler County. The roundup is the result of numerous undercover drug operations over the past year.

The operation isn’t over yet – a total of 69 indictments have been handed down for 68 people. According to an article in the Dayton Daily News, Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones called the roundup the biggest they’ve had since he became sheriff, and the most people arrested at one time.
