DIRT Celebrates One Year, Second Time Around

Sangamon County’s DIRT team is celebrating the first anniversary of its second time around.


The drug interdiction team set up through the sheriff’s department was originally created to battle a surge in methamphetamine cases in the county… but was later disbanded because of budget cuts.


Sheriff Neil Williamson reinstated the team one year ago this week… but this time, the focus has been on marijuana, cocaine, and heroin sold through local drug houses.


In the past year, the unit has seized nearly 5,000 grams of pot, 480 grams of cocaine and 32 grams of heroin, along with cash and guns.
