Drug Investigations On The Rise In Elberta

Drug Investigations On The Rise In Elberta

Posted: Updated:
ELBERTA, Alabama -

Illegal drug activity has kept the Elberta Police Department busy the past few months. Since October, the department has made 88 drug related arrests.

But the town's eight-member police force is unable to keep up with the number of active drug investigations, prompting Chief Stanley DeVane to put an investigator on the force.

DeVane promoted patrol sergeant Scott Tart to detective. Tart is now involved in handling narcotics investigations.
