By the time city, county and federal officers knocked on their last door in the early morning hours Friday, 26 Cullman County residents had been arrested on assorted drug charges as part of a countywide drug roundup.

"We went into this roundup with 37 warrants and we ended up making arrests on 26 of those, so it was a very successful effort," said Sheriff Tyler Roden. "Again I want to thank the help and cooperation we received from the Cullman Police Department and Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Thanks also to Capt. Milford Parrish, director of the Cullman Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET) and his crew for coordinating and participating in the roundup. This was something I know they've been working on for the past six months and they've already begun planning for the next one."

All of those arrested Thursday and Friday were processed through the Cullman County Detention Center. Those not making bail remained in custody Friday. All face arraignment during an upcoming grand jury.

Those who managed to elude arrest Thursday and Friday shouldn't get too comfortable, Parrish said.

"Just because we didn't find you this time doesn't mean we've stopped looking," Parrish said. "We've kept tabs on most of those on our list so we have a good idea where they are likely to be and who they associate with, so we will be watching."

Most of the arrests stemmed from methamphetamine-related crimes and a majority of those arrested during the two-day roundup are repeat offenders, Roden said.

"Overall, I was extremely pleased with how well things went and the number of suspects we were able to arrest," Roden said. "This should send a message to anyone who uses, deals or manufactures drugs in our county that we're serious about finding them and putting them out of business."
