"It lets drug traffickers know we are aware of what's going on and we are doing everything we can to stay on top of things," said an officer.

Narcotics officers tell us they are seeing more and more cases of prescription-drug sales. They say dealers will leave the state to get a prescription and avoid detection by local law enforcement.
"Drug traffickers go as far as Florida to pick up prescriptions and then bring them back," said one of the officers.
These officers are targeting 66 street-level dealers and high traffickers. For three days they will focus their attention on arresting those suspects. "A message to the dealers who are still there: If we didn't see you today we probably got you on the radar for sometime down the road," said Lincoln County Sheriff David Carpenter.
Investigators told Eyewitness News that most of the charges in their operation begin with calls from their drug tip hotline. Investigators are looking for more help from the public for their next operation.
