MADISON COUNTY, MS (WLBT)- The Madison County Sheriff's Department has arrested eight people as part of an ongoing drug investigation.
Operation New Day has also resulted in the confiscation of marijuana, crack cocaine and $22,000 in cash.
The arrests and drugs were found during search warrants served at four homes and a traffic stop.
Sheriff Randy Tucker says, "This is something were going to continue. I was very adamant about that when we took office that we were going to strengthen our narcotics efforts. We've done that."
