LOUISA COUNTY, Va. — More than 20 of the nearly 50 suspected drug dealers indicted in Louisa County were arrested Thursday morning after a year-long undercover operation Louisa County Sheriff’s Major Donnie Lowe said.

“We’re not talking about someone smoking a joint,” Major Lowe said. “We’re talking about very, very dangerous drugs.”

The indictments are connected to the distribution of Heroin, Cocaine, Crack and prescription drugs. Investigators from the Louisa Sheriff’s Office and Virginia State Police worked together on the case.

“The indictments are a result of a year long undercover operation in Louisa County and included hundreds of hours of investigations, search warrants and other arrests,” Lowe said.

Lowe said the suspects mainly worked as individual drug dealers and were not part of a larger drug ring. He said the early-morning round-up went smoothly.
