McMinn County authorities arrested several wanted suspects and seized meth and marijuana plants in a county-wide operation.
During the day-long drug "wipeout" event, sheriff's deputies targeted suspects believed to be involved in criminal activity, and those indicted by a grand jury on drug-related charges.
Sheriff Joe Guy says operations like this help get drug traffickers off the streets.
Altogether, deputies arrested eight suspects during Thursday's operation. Another three turned themselves in to authorities.
