HAMILTON, Ohio -- Butler County authorities arrested 14 people on outstanding drug warrants during a countywide Halloween sweep, Sheriff Richard Jones announced Wednesday.
All of the charges were related to drugs, according to a news release from the Butler County Undercover Regional Narcotics Taskforce. They conduct similar sweeps several times each year, according to Jones.
"Each year, I like to clean house," he said.
The people arrested and charges include:
S'dori Sims - possession of drugs
William Simms - weapons under disability
Rochelle VanWinkle - trafficking
William Gregory - trafficking
Debbie Agee - soliciting
Wayne Adkins - trafficking
Patrick McCoy - possession of chemicals
Sylvia Windwalker - trafficking
Darrell Colwell - trafficking
Roberta Turner - trafficking
David Gayhart - trafficking
Jalen Dent - trafficking
Joseph Sketl - trafficking
Kalib Stapleton - trafficking
Deputies also have warrants for 14 other people, mostly on trafficking charges. Jones said he expected they will be arrested by the end of the week.
Jones said they plan to continue with similar sweeps in the future.
"Heroin is a problem in this community and I am tired of it," he said. "The public is tired of it. Hard-working people are tired of it, and this is just one more way to get these criminals off the street."
