Hinds Co. deputies make more than 30 arrests in crime crackdown

Posted: Updated:
HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Hinds County deputies made more than 30 arrests in the first night of a crackdown on crime operation.

More than 50 law enforcement officers hit the streets in northwest Jackson looking for drugs, prostitutes, and drunk drivers.

A sheriff's department spokesman says the crackdown was very well received from law abiding citizens. Deputies set up DUI check points and made drug busts. They also made sure businesses had the proper paperwork to operate in the city.

The crime sweep will continue for at least two weeks.

Sheriff Tyrone Lewis says this will be the first of many operations in the county leading up to the holiday season.
