“No matter our differences and thoughts on the Covid-19 issue, this is an example to the public that nothing will stand between community safety and cleanup so that we are able to provide a greater environment for the people of Posey County,” said Posey County Sheriff Tom Latham. “Throughout this process, for the safety and security of the other inmates in our facility, we are still taking precautionary measures to help ensure a healthy environment for all inmates.”
Posey County Prosecutor Thomas Clowers commented, “This is a great day for Posey County. I am incredibly grateful for our Drug Task Force – (Posey County Prosecutor’s Office) Investigator Kenny Rose, (Posey County Sheriff’s Office) Detective Dustin Seitz and (Mt. Vernon Police Department) Detective Korben Sellers. Those guys work tirelessly each and every day to remove illegal narcotics and those responsible for selling illegal narcotics from our community. Because of their hard work, and the work of so many other members of Posey County law enforcement, there are less drugs and drugs dealers in our community today than there were yesterday.”
