SMYTH COUNTY, Va. -

24 people were arrested in Smyth County last week and police are still looking for 10 more after a year-long undercover investigation into the drug problem in the area.

The Smyth County Sheriff's Office tells us they received several leads from people in the community which helped lead to all of the indictments.

Police made most of the arrests last Monday.

The Virginia State Police assisted the sheriff's office along with the Marion, Chilhowie, and Saltville Police Departments.
