JONES COUNTY (WDAM) - Nearly two dozen alleged drug dealers in Jones County are off the streets after an abrupt wake-up call Wednesday.

Around 4 a.m., deputies with the Jones County Sheriff's Department went to the streets to complete "Operation Go Get 'Em".

Sheriff Alex Hodge said for the last six months the alleged drug dealers have been under heavy surveillance. He said those arrested were seen handling marijuana, crack cocaine, or methamphetamines.

The suspects are expected to go before a judge sometime Thursday.
