The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office conducted a roving patrol on March 11 that resulted in two dozen misdemeanor and felony charges, according to a news release from Capt. Phillip Young.

During a 12-hour period, Young reported that sheriff’s deputies issued 14 summonses. There also were 15 drug-related charges, as well as 15 misdemeanor and nine felony arrests. Charges included driving on a suspended license, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a concealed weapon.
