88 indicted on 163 drug-related counts in Anderson County

CLINTON, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Anderson County deputies say they plan to arrest 88 people facing 163 drug-related indictments returned by an Anderson County grand jury.

Deputies say the charges stem from an undercover operation that took place over several months.

The charges involved possession, manufacture, sales and delivery of drugs.

Twenty-seven indictments were returned for "smurfing," or the purchase of pseudoephedrine for the use in making meth, deputies say.

As of Thursday afternoon, deputies had already seized 28 vehicles and served 23 search warrants.

Investigators have not released the names of those indicted.
