Monday morning while Fayette County students made their way to school drug task force members rounded up those who allegedly have been selling drugs to those around the community.

The round up took six months to complete in and around the Oak Hill and Mount Hope neighborhoods.

Arrest warrants were obtained for 27 individuals for various charges to include delivery of controlled substances and conspiracy to commit a felony. The illegal drug sales in the investigation ranged from cocaine, marijuana, to prescription medications.

Police are still wanted to locate and arrest the following suspects; Patrick Settle, Charles Wriston, Antwol Moore of Oak Hill, Candi Swafford of Mount Hope, and Frank Sizemore of Page West Virginia.

The Central Regional Drug Task Force conducted the sweep. Those involved in the task force include West Virginia State Police, Fayette County Sheriff's Department, Nicholas County Sheriff's Department, Oak Hill Police Department, Mount Hope Police Department, and the U.S. Marshal's Service.
