DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the incident: “I want to thank the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Deputies and the DeKalb County Narcotics Agents for all your hard work and dedication. We are proud to get this poison off of our streets and away from our children. Sometimes this can be a thankless job, but just knowing that you have potentially kept even one child away from this poison, makes it all worth it.”
“God Bless!” Concluded Sheriff Welden.
