Drugs Valued at $450K+ Seized in Benton Anti-Drug Operation

Police make 16 felony arrests in April initiative.
BENTON, AR (News release) - Every month this year the Benton Police Department will have a different initiative that we will call attention to in relation to a public safety issue. The month of April was ‘Anti-Drug April’, where we focused on different enforcement and education activities to raise awareness about the damage drugs can cause in our community.
 
During April, we also focused strongly on efforts to serve outstanding warrants on those with felony drug charges.
