Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN PARISH, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Lincoln Parish Sheriff deputies continued Operation Summer Heat on Tuesday as they arrested multiple people involved in drugs.

Sheriff officials arrested Tiffany Scott, Jerry Wiltcher, Kelly Trantham, Robert Trantham, Richard Dickerson, Mindy Woods, Tony Eley and Jerry Cantrell on multiple drug related drug charges.

LPNET and LPSO officials used search warrants to investigate the homes of the listed individuals and found methanphetimines, marijuana, and intent to deliver charges.

Sheriff officials also found prescription medicines and weapons in the raids.  

The arrests indicate a turning point in a lengthy criminal investigation. As a result of these arrests, LPNET foresees the seizure of assets, specifically the motor vehicles that were used by the suspect in the commission of these offenses.

Firearms used during these offenses will be forfeited, along with other assets.

Seized assets, with the exception of firearms, are ultimately sold, with the proceeds going back to assist in the fight against the illegal drug activity.

Sheriff Mike Stone issued a statement regarding the operation:

"For the past several months LPNET has conducted an intensive campaign we dubbed "Operation Summer Heat." The arrests and search warrants we conducted this week are a culmination of this program. I want to especially recognize all members of Lincoln Parish Narcotics Enforcement team (LPNET). This was a major campaign that resulted in over 100 arrest and the confiscation of numerous items recovered from thefts and burglaries, as well as illicit drugs taken off the streets of Lincoln Parish. I would also like to recognize the Sheriff's Office Investigative unit which assisted in the operation. To the many citizens who provided information and support we thank you for your concern and assistance in keeping Lincoln Parish a safe place to live and work. We will continue our efforts and put those on notice who choose to involve themselves with the illicit drug trade in our Parish. Thanks again to all the work done by these dedicated Deputies and Officers.
