Most of the charges were for dealing methamphetamine, others were for dealing heroin, cocaine, marijuana, or other drugs.
FRANKLIN, Ind. — More than 100 people were charged this week in connection with a massive drug bust in Johnson County, Indiana.
Of the 120 charged, 61 (and counting) were arrested Thursday morning, Johnson County Prosecutor Brad Cooper said.
A year ago, the prosecutor's office charged 63 people in a drug bust.
"We said if you're going to deal drugs in Johnson County, the law enforcement in this community is going to identify you, find you and arrest you," Cooper said.
Not all people charged were from Johnson County, but all the charges stemmed from Johnson County incidents.

Cooper believes the crime rate in Johnson County will go down over the next couple of months.
He said they may not ever catch and arrest all 120, but that's OK with him, as long as they stay out of the county.
"That's not a bad thing," he said. "That's just as good as putting them in jail to me. My concerns begin and end at the county line."
