BECKLEY - Several law enforcement agencies in Raleigh County are serving 69 warrants on 35 people for felony drug charges.

The sweep began early Wednesday morning and will continue throughout the day.  The arrests stem from several months of investigations and are on state and federal charges.

Beckley Police Chief Timothy Deems said that because of the area's location and size, it's been called "ground zero" for prescription drug abuse.  Deems said although law enforcement continues to fight narcotics in the area, they've noticed an increase in cocaine-based drug offenses.

He said they have 19 warrants on cocaine-based charges, 35 for prescription drugs, and an additional 15 on marijuana, meth, and other drug charges.

Deems hopes the round up "Deter[s] others from selling drugs illegally and get these people off the street. He added, "That will give some relief to their communities."

A complete list of arrests and charges will be released Thursday.
