On Thursday, deputies and drug task force agents with the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office conducted saturation patrols in the Kilpatrick area that resulted in 13 arrests.

The charges ranged from drug paraphernalia to drinking while driving. Two were also found to have outstanding warrants with other agencies.

Ethan Nathaniel Heaton, 27, of Crossville, was found to be in possession of methamphetamine, roughly 40 Tramadol pills, and several other illegal prescriptions. Heaton attempted to flee on foot, but was apprehended after a short foot chase.

“This operation was another part of our effort to clean up our communities,” DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said. “We’ll continue them across the county to make it difficult for those who break the law to travel our roads.”
