PREVIOUS STORY:

Two dozen people have been arrested and deputies are expecting the arrest of many more in an undercover drug operation that focused on illegal sale of prescription medicines.

Carteret County Sheriff Asa Buck and District Attorney Scott Thomas announced the result of "Operation Pill Crusher" Thursday morning.

Over the past several months, investigators have made hundreds of controlled buys from more than 100 suspected drug dealers in the county.

So far, 24 arrests have been made and deputies say they plan to arrest 75 more.

"I want them to sit home and wonder when the knock is going to come to the door," says Sheriff Buck. "I want them to wait. I want them to be afraid, because they are ruining our community and they are destroying people's lives. I want them to feel some of that."

Deputies say many of those targeted have extensive criminal records.

Sheriff Buck says more people die overdosing from prescription medication than all other illegal drugs combined.
