MARION COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Marion County law enforcement pulled together in a concerted effort to take drug dealers off the streets on Saturday.

Officials said the operation was a success as 20 individuals were picked up on various drug charges.

The investigations that led the arrests began more than two years ago, said officials. The operation swept up more than $6,000 worth of cocaine , several thousand in cash, and numerous firearms.

The alleged offenders made their initial appearances in court on Monday, some openly claiming gang affiliations.
