IBERVILLE PARISH, La (NBC33) — Operation: Prescribed Justice saw its first convictions today in Iberville Parish.
The operation was an undercover investigation conducted back in March that put over a dozen people behind bars on drug charges.
These 15 people were convicted this week for possession and distribution of controlled dangerous substances.
Sheriff Brett Stassi says they will continue to work to keep illegal drugs off the streets, and also urges people to speak up if you see anything suspicious in the community.
