Police arrested 32 drug suspects in Walker County during a multi-agency two-day roundup.

“Operation Rolling Thunder” began Wednesday and authorities were able to dismantle four methamphetamine labs and arrest 32, including seven wanted on fugitive warrants, said Sheriff Steve Wilson in a news release.

Suspects were arrested on multiple drug charges, including manufacturing and distribution of meth, distribution of crack cocaine and possession of prescription drugs, Wilson said.

Local area law enforcement offices along with state and federal agencies assisted in the arrests, he said.
