St. Landry Parish deputies conducted the the biggest drug roundup in since last year on Tuesday.
The Sheriff's Department served 41 drug arrest warrants for distribution of-- or possession with intent to distribute-- illegal narcotics.
"Operation Spring Cleanup" is the first big roundup in months-since Operation Falcon in the fall.
Deputies traveled through the Parish all day, arresting who they find.
The Sheriff's Department says many of the areas, like Ina Clair Street in Opelousas, have had drug problems for years.
Things are looking up, however, with arrests being down in the past 3 months.
