16 arrested, more wanted in Bienville drug roundup

ARCADIA, La. (AP) Bienville Parish Sheriff John Ballance says agencies are still looking for several people wanted in an undercover drug investigation that began in March.

He says that 16 people were arrested Wednesday, and another 29 people had been arrested by Dec. 31.

The Bienville sheriff's narcotics division targeted street level dealers across the parish. In all, Ballance says investigators bought drugs from about 60 people.

Charges include possession of weapons and drugs such as crack cocaine, methamphetamine and prescription narcotics.

Ballance says some of the wanted people were making arrangements to turn themselves in.
