A four-year investigation culminated Monday night in the arrest of 51 people that involved 700 state and federal law enforcement officers.

Five Helena-West Helena Police officers were included in the arrests. The charges include public corruption, drug trafficking, money laundering and firearms offenses.

thats very good that the town is being cleaned up.i heard it was once a good place to live. until the drugs and corruption took place. now the feel of the place is not a good one.i hope that these actions taken by police makes a differance. i know that all these troubles have made it uncomfortable for the elderly,people who have worked so hard , delth with so much to get where they are. i know there are no way to stop the bad influnances that come in from other places,and so easy accepted, but maybe if there were some kind of hope other than opression , things could get better.so when you finish with the drug and corruption ,make sure you clean up thoes good old boys.also dig them up by the roots,so that can never grow again.bring an even better feeling to the city,and giving a real equal oppertunity for life there.

It's only the tip of the iceberg. I have many relatives in West Helena. I can assure you that the instigators and all the fronters are alive and well in West Helena and especially the big money boys in Old White Helena.

There's more officers that needed to be added to the list. Sure I might just have some old grudges, but why isn't Mike Russell on that list? Especially if the investigation is really 4 years running, him and his wife should both be locked up as well. I'm really surprised at Marlene and Dean Jackson..

Yes, itís true my wonderful President Mr. Obama has taken these drug crazed thugs off the street. This means you can all live the American Dream that he wants to create for you but you all must vote for him again.
So if you are happy and you like how he is running the country then vote Obama in 2012.
VOTE OBAMA!

And something more funny is some Dunb AZZ from Heber pretending he knows all about cocaine. That entire town couldn't scrape 20 dollars together on a saturday night so they damn sure won't be doing any cocaine.

I don't think there is a need to get defensive so calm down. An offer was made to help you and the kind of help we can give looks VERY good on a resume. In the end it is all up to you.
