About 30 individuals have been taken into custody from Perry, Fairfield, and Hocking counties, during what the US Marshall’s Service is calling "Operation Rolling Thunder," and they face an array of drug and burglary charges.

The agency worked directly with the Hocking County Sheriff’s Office and the Fairfield-Hocking Major Crimes Unit along with several other departments. It’s a big operation that Deputy US Marshall Brian Babtist says the agency has been working on for a while.

He says drugs were confiscated at some of the locations and he expects the operation to lead to more arrests.
