According to Sheriff Darrell Dix this operation once again demonstrates the continued cooperation of Local, State and surrounding counties efforts in investigating illegal activity.
Sheriff Dix stated, “The fact that these crimes were committed in such close proximity to two of our schools, and that Underwood and others were using his elderly mother’s residence as a front for the
distribution of narcotics typifies the mentality that criminals demonstrate. This is even more evident in that fact that Underwood’s own children were placed in a situation where they were exposed to the dangers of his activities. With the new air of cooperation and communication between local and surrounding law enforcement agencies we are going to continue to put increasing pressure on drug dealers, gang members, and other criminals. You are not welcome here and we are taking our community back.”
