IT's about time. The police in OR do nothing about drugs even if it's called in. THEY wont' do anything unless its for publicity or they haven't gotten their share. WOW!!!

Anderson County deputies now have cars that are assigned specifically for drug interdiction, etc. They are also patrolling in Oak Ridge and making a significant number of arrests. I believe that at least law enforcement is trying again. It will be difficult to make up for the increased influx of illegals who are heavily involved in DUIs, drugs, and gang activity and the fact that drug/gang activity are so deeply ingrained into certain areas. It would help immensely if there was some government will to address the illegals.

Right now, most officers will not even make traffic stops of drivers who look hispanic because they know they can't do anything if they turn out to be illegal! That needs to be dealt with.

To Josh Johnson - I am sure that is not your real name, but we are looking for you . . . . If you are involved, your name may already be on a warrant since we didn't get everyone we have warrants for yet.

most of these idiots will be back on the streets in days. A lot of this is just a photo op--if you don't believe it, look at the front page of the Oak Ridger Crime Gazette. Gees, what a depressing newspaper
Happy for change

I'm VERY glad to see that the Anderson County District Attorney's office is really getting tough on drug crime. Since the new D.A. took over, there has been an overwhelming increase in felony convictions in Anderson County. Great Job!! By the way, kudos to the Oak Ridge narcotics unit for nabbing so many street thugs! Those are the idiots who are shooting guns and hurting people the most. Keep up the good work!!

I agree. When Jim Ramsey was the D.A., with the assistance of that idiot Jan Hicks, street-level drug dealers got no jail time or felony convictions. This looks like the start of a great comeback for Oak Ridge. We need strong prosecutors to help the police do their job. I'm very pleased for Oak Ridge and Anderson County. Congratulations!

Do you have any idea how infrequently there is rape or murder in Oak Ridge that doesn't get solved? How about never. ORPD does a great job of solving crimes. The only problem is, in the past, that the D.A.'s office couldn't convict the criminals. When the witnesses/victims, police, and prosecutors work together, there is almost always a conviction. Do your part people! Report crime and show up for court to testify! Put the pressure on the prosecutors to convict!

I watched a Police Officer write 3 people a ticket for Drug Paraphernalia. All three people had crack, meth and oxy's on them along with the pipe to smoke crack in. The only thing they were charged for was the pipe. Wonder what happened to the drugs they took? hummmmmm J.T.
