Early Tuesday morning, before 6 a.m., agents from ATF, members of the Jackson SWAT team, Martin Police Department and several other agencies began issuing warrants in Martin and throughout Weakley County.

Martin Police along with state and federal agents from the ATF, FBI, DEA, THP, and TBI served numerous arrest warrants and search warrants on various individuals and locations in the Martin Weakley County area,” according to a press release from MPD.

“The drug operation has been the result of a multi-jurisdictional undercover investigation over the span of approximately two years. Teams of officers hit the ground at approximately 6:00 a.m. Tuesday morning and the operation has resulted in the arrest of several individuals believed to be known gang members.”

MPD Capt. Don Teal confirmed that no shots have been fired.

“What everyone heard was the flashbang, which is a diversionary weapon,” Teal said.

Over 100 ATF agents have been in Weakley County this morning.

“The investigation began due to the ever increasing number of drug and gang related incidents which have occurred in the Martin and surrounding area,” the press release read.

This is Wonderful news. Any houses associated with this should be sold at auction.... or burned down first if they are meth houses.

Druggies should be forced to pick up garbage on chain gangs.

If prisons were more like we saw in Shawshsank Redemption, there might be fewer people getting into drugs anyway.

Any drug-dealers should also have the IRS on their butts for tax evasion, as well.

I wish those 100 agents could stay here and stay at post on several street corners in this town.

LONG LIVE MARTIN!

Wish they wouldn't have done this while the kids were leaving for school. Not only are the kids who are walking to bus stop in danger, you have other kids who had parents arrested.
They did a great job getting trash off our streets, just bad timing

Kids who had parents arrested? GREAT!!!!!

The only danger would be idiot "parents" with Guns who try to point them at FEDERAL AGENTS.

CPS should have taken those kids away from loser parents, anyway.

6AM is the only time you can catch DOPE-heads at home.

Praise GOD the agents are willing to risk their lives to keep Martin Safe and free of HUMAN DEBRIS.

Wow this has to be the most over blown ridiculous thing I've ever seen. They go after small time dealers but the people pushing pills and meth sit back and laugh. If they really wanted to clean Martin up they would start with city hall and the police station and hey the big dealers.

MCT, you refer to God which begs the question: are all Men created equal or not? What about the support needed to help those who are were destitute? Sadly, drugs were there crutch and support system. Two year operation? Why? To let those who needed Divine intervention to help them? I think not. How is God going to break the circle of the kids who are now without parents?

Hypocrisy annoys me. Those that invoke God when it is convenient. "Put all of the supposed evil doers in prison and give them a Bible." No drug intervention? Counseling? JOBS?!

For some, this is not a choice. Probably why we, as a nation, have the greatest amount of prisoners in the world. Hey, how about signing a petition to take away guns? We could have stricter rules like Canada!

No, that is too radical for God-fearing Tennesseans who demand the God-given right to bear arms.

agree! Weakley co probably got some new equipment to use and im sure when this comes out im sure it will be no big drug dealers probably just some small town weed dealers or something small...not enough to use the money for over 100 agents and helicopters and yes at 6am while children going to school great timing, why could it not have started till after children were in school.

I say we all just start naming people that way the names are at least out there in the public posted anonymously. if they aren't in the wrong the. They will be fine. if they are then we can point law officers in a direction to look and clean up our town

"are all Men created equal or not?"

Yes. It is one's decisions that determine one's future.

"What about the support needed to help those who are were destitute?"

Ever seen people loading up carts of FREE groceries at Walmart.

Yes. The dopers were watched for 2 years. GET OVER IT.

I didn't say anything about the Bible. Where did that come from?

Try selling Drugs in North Korea or Saudi Arabia.
>>>>That's not exactly part of the Bible Belt.

To paraphrase: "yes, all Men are created equal...it is up to each individual to determine their destiny."

Hmmmm. Curious. So you are a "tabla rasa" or "clean slate" sort of person who believes that even the poorest of the poor with a dysfunctional family can rise to be a leader of the nation someday. Quite naive. The fact that you are able to write complete sentences on Topix shows that you had a bit of help at birth. Comfortable life? Good upbringing? Not ALL your decision, now was it? Sadly, not everyone has this advantage from birth.

"Free groceries at Walmart?" - Yes, I have seen and participated. How often does that happen? Few times each year. No questioning that one. How about people who have no cars? How about people who do not want to take the NWTA to get a handout? People need to eat and have a roof over their heads every day. Habitat for Humanity builds a house a year at best. Who gets it? Like plowing the sea.

Who brought up the Bible? You by invoking God's name. Ok, Allah. Makes you feel better? No problem. Take a drink of wine in a staunchly Muslim country? Illegal. You face jail time. Not even speaking of selling drugs. I am speaking of simple possession. Want a laugh? Look up what you pontificate about North Korea and drug laws? Look them up. They have FAR lighter laws about marijuana then our own beloved state. Google it and then tell me that I am wrong.

What do you call a "drug?" Alcohol? Prescription? Marijuana?

Sure, put them in jail and make the taxpayers pay for them to sit around and look at the walls. Not like they cannot continue using in jail / prison, right?

Colorado can legalize marijuana but Martin cannot legalize wine yet we have just about every gas station selling beer. Justify that one.
