Posted June 7, 2007 9:03 p.m. EDT

— Nearly two dozen people are in jail thanks to an ongoing operation to weed out drugs.

Since February, Franklin County agents have conducted an undercover drug operation. So far, 150 criminal drug charges have been brought against 43 people.

Officers credit the help of the community for the sting.

Investigators said they believe people are getting more comfortable with telling officers about criminal activity.
