Christian County Drug Bust


Taylorville, IL- 20 arrests were made in Christian County and more are on the way in a county-wide drug bust.

County leaders say they arrested illegal drug manufacturers and dealers, some working near churches and schools. Residents say drugs are a problem in the area because state police are not always there to make drug busts.

Last week the regional drug task force helped the county issue 33 drug indictments.

The Christian County State's Attorney says last week the courthouse had its largest grand jury indictment in recent history, and more cases could develop from the arrests that were made.
