|On Thursday, May 30, 2013, Putnam County Sheriff’s Office Deputies spread out across the county this morning in the final phase of “Operation Spring Cleaning”.
The operation began five months ago with Drug/Vice Unit Detectives conducting undercover purchases of cocaine, marijuana and narcotic medication in all areas of Putnam County from Interlachen to Crescent City. As a result of the undercover investigation, arrest warrants for the sale of controlled substances were issued for 23 individuals.
At the time of this release, 12 suspects had been arrested during the apprehension phase of the operation. The remaining 11 suspects are currently wanted on active warrants for the sale of controlled substances. Efforts to locate and arrest the remaining suspects are ongoing.
Anyone with information that could lead the arrest of the remaining suspects are encouraged to contact the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office at (386)329-0801 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous and persons providing information leading to the arrest of one of these suspects may be eligible for a reward. Sheriff Jeff Hardy stated “We are fortunate to have such dedicated detectives who work tirelessly to keep criminals off the streets of Putnam County”.
