Three arrested on drug-related charges in McDowell
WELCH — A search warrant executed at a McDowell County residence netted three arrests, police said.
The Welch Police Department, the McDowell County Sheriff’s Department and the Southern Regional Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force executed a search warrant Sunday around 7 p.m. at a residence in Welch, according to sheriff’s depart­ment chief deputy Mark Shelton. Three individuals from the Welch and Kimball areas were arrested on drug-related charges as a result of the search warrant. A small amount of narcotics also were recovered at the resi­dence.
A joint investigation by the three agencies led to the search warrant and arrests.

lol, yeah right...just in time for the election.

Did the Sheriff's Dept. Share this info with the Welch PD? You may want to think about that.
However, if they got anyone for dealing drugs, I'm still applauding. We just need this to be an everyday occurance.

I seem to recall several occasions where *some* of the Welch P.D. worked with the sheriff's department in the past - and not "just in time for the election." Give credit where credit is due; no matter what cop, what city, what agency - arrests are being made! If we truly want what is best for the county - we won't be mad over who did what - but proud something has been done!

I applauded, I'm not mad, and I'm proud something was done. I know where the credit it due, and I'm giving it.
I want to see it done consistantly, and I'm not seeing that.

You mean the drug busts haven't been consistent, or the cooperation between the agencies?

With all due respect, I have to disagree. There have been numerous drug arrests scattered over the past couple years, and many in collaboration with other agencies. Granted, they haven't been with the assistance of your husband - but he isn't the only city officer. I hope I'm not coming off as rude, because that is not my intention - I enjoy an intelligent debate when I can find one!

key words for me..."scattered over the past couple of years".
And with what other agencies? The FBI? I have known of a couple of instances where a city officer gathered information and turned it over to the sheriff's dept. but not many.
Why didn't the sheriff's office let the city police know there were these outstanding warrants that were served on the night of this drug raid? These people have been out, night after night, riding around, with the sheriff's dept. secretly holding the warrants.
I want the drug arrests to come more often, with more teamwork, no secret warrants, a database so all authorized personnel will have the capability of knowing who has an outstanding warrant.
(I like a good debate too).

What, do you expect huge busts every day? Even SP wouldn't stretch to promise that. I think the term "secret warrants" may be a stretch - but I won't argue with you, because I don't know for certain. As a police officer's wife, you should know good and thorough investigations take time and help from others. Has the city police come forward and asked to be a part? I have heard that S.P. is a great person, he is not the easiest officer to work with. Can city officers not act at all on their own accord?

SP's latest ad said "Say it with me: Take their Dope, Take their Cash, Take their Car."

It seems a vital piece of information was left out... take it all and let them go?

IMHO, the county has come leaps and bounds in regards to drug investigations and arrests. They have been consistent and steady, and I think under the current sheriff's term - the dopers are running scared.

I agree with "Goodness"...a good and thorough investigation takes time... Just like the old saying...

One time there was an old bull and a young bull sitting on top of a hill overlooking a field of cows. The young bull looks at the old bull and says "Lets run down in the field and screw one of the cows." The old bull looks at the young bull and says, "Hell, son, lets walk down there and screw them all."

Think about it.

Ms. McKinney, I've read several of your previous posts and you've continuously complained about no teamwork with the agencies throughout the county. I've read in articles in the paper over the last several years where these agencies are noted to be working together.

When they do work together as a team you complain. Are you ever satisifed? Or is this just a campaign strategy?

Well, M.M. wouldn't be doing her job if she admitted the positives. Can't blame her for it!

Sorry, didn't mean to leave ya'll hanging like that, I was busy doing my real life jobs, like getting everyone clothes ready for the kids grandma's wake tonight. So let me warn you now...I probably will not be around much tonight again.

I think I did express the positives at the beginning of this. I think I applauded all who were involved. It is the MAIN focus you know, getting the drugs off our streets.
My expression here is about teamwork I suppose. I think what SP is saying is teamwork is a two way street. Not only should the city police turn over information to the sheriff's dept., but the sheriff's dept should also share information (re: outstanding warrants, etc.) with the city police and the state police.

I'm not sure if I ever will be satisfied with the drug situation in our county, but I know I'm not satisfied now.

Are you guys all "satisfied" with the amount of drugs in our county?

I never saw the word...."outstanding " warrant in the article.

Sounds to me like there`s someone on the Welch Police Dept. that the County don`t trust with secrets..Could be they`ve turned those outstanding warrants over before and someone leaked the info. before they could make the raid..
Sounds kinda fishy to me..

I think it was in the Welch News article written by CP. I'd have to check the exact wording.
