TELL CITY, Ind. (WFIE) - A series of narcotics investigations has landed 21 people in jail in Tell City.

According to the Tell City Police Department, the investigations targeted offenses related to the distribution of methamphetamine and controlled substances.

Officials say in 2016, the Tell City Police Department, with the support of the Perry County Prosecutor’s Office, developed an initiative to apply enhanced enforcement to target the influx of methamphetamine and other drugs in Perry County.
