HAMPSHIRE COUNTY, W.Va. - Deputies with the Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office have arrested 18 people in connection to a massive drug bust spanning over three areas in Hampshire County.

Sheriff John P. Alkire, with the Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office says on Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, 18 Hampshire County residents were indicted on felony drug charges stemming from an ongoing 10 month narcotics investigation.

Sheriff Alkire said bench warrants were issued on 15 individuals in Hampshire County Circuit Court. Members of the Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office, West Virginia State Police, and Romney City Police executed five search warrants throughout Hampshire County that were issued by Hampshire County Magistrate Court.

Deputies said while serving 15 bench warrants, three other Hampshire County residents were also arrested on drug related charges. They said drug related paraphernalia, narcotics and cash were found inside the residences.

Alkire said members of the Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office have worked extremely hard to make Hampshire County a safe community, and said he would like to thank the community for their support, as well as other local law enforcement.
