The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department found about two ounces of crack cocaine Friday night after executing three search warrants at three separate locations, and while no arrests have yet been made, Sheriff Lloyd Emmons says the investigation continues and evidence will probably be presented to the August term of the Grand Jury.

The search warrants were drawn up after officers learned that crack cocaine was being sold in DeKalb County. Upon executing the search warrants, Emmons says two ounces of the drug were found at one of the homes along with a small amount of money, but no drugs were found at either of the other two locations.

Sheriff Emmons says the crack cocaine that officers found had an estimated street value of six to ten thousand dollars.

According to Emmons, the drug may be coming out of Wilson County and being transported here. \"The TBI is aware of the investigation and the players in this case may very well be some of the same people the TBI arrested in a major sting a few years ago in another county and were given probation.\"

Emmons says crack cocaine, a highly addictive drug which is as dangerous as methamphetamine, could make a comeback here unless it is dealt with by law enforcement.
