BRUNSWICK, Ga. - Glynn County narcotics officers arrested 17 people in the second roundup in a week stemming from an undercover investigation.

The Glynn/Brunswick Narcotics Enforcement Team aided by county and Brunswick police carried out back-to-back raids beginning at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday at homes in the city and unincorporated areas of the county.

Officers sought 25 people wanted on drug charges resulting from a two-month investigation targeting street and mid-level dealers, said Capt. Terry Wright, team commander.

When the roundup concluded about noon, 17 people were in custody.

How about Richmond county

How about Richmond county needs to start focusing on all the unsolved murders from this year. Arresting these dealers won't effect anything. I'm sure 17 people have already stepped up and taken their place. The War on Drugs is a failure.

User, you might solve the

User, you might solve the cases but you aren't going to stop the murders. They are "crimes of passion".

A crime of passion, in popular usage, refers to a crime in which the perpetrator commits a crime, especially assault or murder, against someone because of sudden strong impulse such as sudden rage or heartbreak rather than as a premeditated crime. A typical crime of passion might involve an aggressive pub-goer who assaults another guest following an argument and later discovers his wife has made him a cuckold and proceeds to brutally batter or even kill his wife or the man with whom she was involved.
