At Least 5 Drug Arrests Monday Focused On Fentanyl

In an effort to combat fentanyl overdoses across the county, the Putnam County Sheriffs Office served at least five arrest warrants Monday.

Charges include the Manufacture, Sell, and Delivery of Methamphetamine as well as other drugs. The Sheriff’s Office Drug Division led the work Monday, which will continue over the next several days.
