Marshall County Sheriff Kevin Cecil says five two-member interdiction teams have been formed to combat drug trafficking.
The sheriff has allocated several vehicles, a K-9 unit, a license plate reader and overtime funding to support the program.
Task force leaders also disclosed the results of last year's anti-drug efforts. Investigations by the task force in 2013 resulted in 277 felony charges against 64 people. About $578,000 in assets were seized or forfeited.
