The Patrick County Sheriff’s Office has concluded its largest narcotics operation in the department’s history according to Sheriff Dan Smith. On Thursday, the agencies conducted a widespread manhunt for 98 individuals named in 340 sealed narcotics distribution indictments handed down by a Patrick County grand jury on Monday. The investigation has been going on for a year and a half and about half of those indicted are not residents of Patrick County. Smith said that the manhunt will continue until all those named have been arrested. All unserved indictments will be unsealed by the Patrick County Circuit Court on March 13th.
