The bulk of the others charged and/or arrested in the round-up are from Jonesville, Boonville, and Yadkinville, according to information released by the sheriff’s office.

All totaled, authorities arrested 24 individuals, with 16 others still being sought, or already in custody elsewhere on other charges.

Anyone with information on the location of any of these individuals is asked to contact the Yadkin County Sheriff’s Office at (336) 679-4217.

A total of 252 charges were issued. The investigation continues, and other charges are pending. All suspects were taken to the Yadkin County Detention Center for processing. All suspects will have a first appearance and their next court date will be Feb. 13.
