GAFFNEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said 46 warrants have been obtained during a drug roundup over the weekend.

Deputies said the roundup of area drug dealers kicked off Thursday morning. So far, deputies said 18 suspects have been taken into custody and 12 more are wanted on outstanding charges.

The roundup is the conclusion of an undercover operation the Cherokee County Narcotics Unit launched eight months ago.

Deputies said most of the suspects are repeat offenders and they hope, with the video evidence they have obtained, there will be " substantial prison time for each of these persons who have been given chance after chance and continue to break the law."
