A six-month undercover drug investigation in Huron County ended with 14 arrests Wednesday

Officers in operation “Crystal Clear” made undercover drug buys from June 2012 to January 2013, according to Huron County Sheriff’s Detective Josh Querin.

The operation was so named to send a clear message that Huron County has zero tolerance for narcotic sales, the sheriff’s office stated in a release.

Police agencies in Huron County and from the Richland County Sheriff’s Office coordinated efforts in Clyde, Bellevue, Norwalk, Greenwich and Willard, Querin said.

In the end, 19 people were indicted, although five remain at large.
