May 2, 2016: Arrests and Drug Seizure Statistics

This year the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office’s STOP (Sheriff’s Tactical Operations Patrol) Team has worked very hard at interrupting drug trafficking in Kanawha County.  Since January 1, 2016 they’ve removed $593,401 in drugs and $111,639 cash from the drug trade, making 61 arrests in just four months.  

Sometimes these cases are better worked quietly, without publicity.  One arrest can sometimes lead to another and another until a major supplier can be identified and arrested.  So while we cannot always discuss the particulars of each case, we are very proud of the work they’ve done.  Below are some of the statistics from January 1 – April 30 2016.
