Authorities in Indianola, cracking down on narcotic dealers in the city.

Over the last five months, Police Chief Edrick Hall, says he and his team have been investigating known drug dealers in order to decrease the amount of drugs in the community.

The team has successful purchased narcotics undercover from dealers within the city, as a part of the Drug Round-up Operation.

Hall says he is dedicated to making sure neighborhoods are drug free.

"Well first we want to stay community oriented, that's on thing we always try to do. So if there are areas where we have neighbors who don't feel its safe to stand outside, they can reach out to me and we'll focus on that area, we have an entire city to cover. And it doesn't matter where it is; if you feel like there is a location that may have issues with drugs or narcotics, reach out to me personally and we'll try to include your area in the next round up. But we just want to let them know its not going to be tolerated in the city of Indianola."

Terry Wiley, Anthony Leflore, Melvin Triplett, Joseph Gipson and Marcus Henderson.

There are active warrants for Shaquille Weeks, Leslie Jerome Washington, Drayvon Ross, Martquavious Johnson, Derrick Jackson and Damien Buck..
