The Johnson County Sheriff's Office in KY began their "Operation June Bug" drug roundup Thursday morning, June 19.

The five that were arrested include:

Heather F. Stambaugh

James Douglas Daniels

Elizabeth G. Skeens

Sheriff Price says all of their charges are drug related, and that the names of the other five will be released Friday, June 20, giving them an opportunity to turn themselves in before police ask for community assistance in locating them.

According to Sheriff Price, "This is one of many roundups in the past three years.  Future roundups are scheduled.  We will not tolerate or ignore drug activity in our county.  We will continue our fight with community support and continue to make Johnson County a safer place to live."
