Wood County Charges 149 People in Drug Bust

The Wood County district attorney's office has charged 149 people so far in a large drug bust. The arrests began last month after a 15-month investigation.

An undercover officer was able to purchase marijuana, LSD, methamphetamine and prescription drugs in every transaction.

The suspects range in age from 17 to 64. Officers have completed the major roundup but could make more arrests soon. The district attorney expects many of the suspects to work out plea deals, but it could take until the end of the year to get them all through the court system.
