The Floyd County Sheriff’s office made numerous drug related arrests over the weekend for heroin, fentanyl and other illegal drugs.
In response to several tips and complaints of illegal drug activity in the Ivel community, Sheriff Hunt and deputies made several arrests over the weekend. On Friday night deputies made a traffic stop on US 23 at Ivel. Deputies discovered that one of the occupants in that vehicle was a fugitive and wanted out of Illinois. Deputies also found illegal drugs in the vehicle and both occupants were arrested on numerous drug charges.
Later Friday night early Saturday morning, deputies again made a stop on a vehicle in the Ivel community and soon discovered that the occupant inside that vehicle was wanted on parole violation charges. Deputies also discovered fentanyl, heroin and other drugs along with drug paraphernalia.
