LINCOLN PARISH, La. (KNOE) - Authorities have conducted a huge crime sweep in Lincoln Parish. Dozens of people were arrested on over 100 warrants.

The Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s office seized six guns, a bulletproof vest, ecstasy, $6,000 in cash, 50 grams of cocaine, 80 grams of meth, 300 grams of marijuana, 100 prescription pills, and 232 grams of synthetic marijuana. The total street value of everything seized was $18,000. Sheriff Stephen Williams hopes this will lead to more arrests in the future.

“It’s not a finale, it’s a start. We’re going to continue to work, when you have cases like this, you’ll turn over leads and get more leads. We have many more warrants all ready to serve. Usually, when you do something like this, it kind of stirs it up and it gets even busier for our narcotics group so we’ll just keep running down leads and keep following it wherever it goes,” said Williams.

15 other agencies helped with the warrant round-up including the Ruston Police Department.
