A Mingo County drug program that has lead to more than 50 arrests will continue in honor of Sheriff Eugene Crum.

Prosecutor C. Michael Sparks said "Operation Zero Tolerance," a drug program with which Crum worked closely will be renamed "Operation Fight the Good Fight - Protect and Serve."

Seven people who have plead guilty to drug charges that were investigated, in part, by Sheriff Crum will be sentenced May 6 at 9:00 a.m.
