"The opioid problem is a real problem here," Sheriff Rod Seelye said. "A lot of the people, the addicts, are actually traveling to Louisville and New Albany for their drugs. We do have a few that are selling heroin here, but it's going to make a big comeback.

"I've been in this since 1989 and it's circular and I think methamphetamine will be taking the opioids' place somewhere in the future."

Sheriff Seelye credits Harrison County's success with the combined effort of the prosecutor's office.

Harrison County Prosecutor Otto Schalk agreed, they've been tough on drug traffickers for six years.

"It's full throttle ahead and we're seeking long term incarceration more often than not," he said.

Some charges filed Friday are level 2 felonies which carry up to 30 years in prison.

"I would suspect many of the people that are facing those significant level 3, or level 2 charges will not be part of a society of free people for a long time," Schalk said.
