The Grand Jury is meeting this week in Greenbrier County.  Among those who were indicted are several drug offenders. 

Despite information from the circuit court that the indictments are sealed until signed by the judge, Greenbrier County Sheriff James Childers released information on several arrests that were made on Tuesday, Oct. 9.

There are a total of 15 indictments on 35 charges for drug related crimes.  The indictments stem from several months of investigations conducted by the narcotics unit.  The round-up on Tuesday included city police departments and U.S. Marshals.

"When they're out here selling a pill for this, selling a pill for that, it takes a while to do a good drug investigation," said Sheriff Childers, "You have to get more than one buy and it takes a lot of work."

Here is a look at those who are being held in the Southern Regional Jail:

Brian Brown, 45, held on $7,500 bond.

Gary Flora, 33, held on $7,500 bond.

William Hayes, 36, held on $5,000 bond.
