The "Operation Scrooge" round-up is a result of investigations held over an 8-month period by the Bowling Green-Warren County Drug Task Force, Bowling Green Police Department, and the Kentucky State Police Drug Enforcement Agency.

Earlier today, 17 suspected drug-dealers from the "Operation Scrooge" list were arrested and taken to the Warren County Jail.

According to those involved in the investigation, the drug round-ups always seem to be effective.

"They're very successful. We'll get more than half of them today for sure and after that work for the next couple of weeks to try to get them all rounded up. Usually it only takes a week to get them all arrested", says Bowling Green Police Officer Shawn Helbig.

According to officers, spending time investigating the drug-dealers does take up a large amount of time, but the end result is worth the time.

"It certainly calls attention to the fact that drug traffickers are out here, but on the other hand it's showing this community is doing something about it", says Warren County Drug Task Force Officer Tommy Loving.

The Bowling Green-Warren County Drug Task Force, Bowling Green Police Department, and the Kentucky State Police will continue to look for those on the "Operation Scrooge" list that haven't been found yet.

They hope to have all the suspected drug-dealers on the list in jail by the holiday.
