A year-long undercover drug operation has led to dozens of arrests and the seizure of 24 firearms in Richmond County.

On Thursday, Sheriff Richard Roundtree announced the arrests of 31 people and two wanted people as part of the operation. The year-long operation was designed to disrupt and dismantle the “dangerous drug trafficking organization in our community while also targeting those that support and enable these criminal drug trafficking enterprises,” the sheriff said in a press release.

Many of the arrests have already happened. In all, 33 have been identified as drug trafficking co-conspirators involved in the Larry Wright’s Drug Trafficking Organization.

From the press release: “Larry Wright and several of his associates were targeted in this investigation. The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division and the Federal Bureau of Investigations Safe Streets Gang Task Force (FBI), in conjunction with the Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI), Georgia Bureau of Community Supervision (DCS), and with support from the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University concluded this year-long undercover drug operation.”
