BLOUNTSTOWN, Fla. (WTXL) - The Calhoun-Liberty Drug Task Force says that 13 people have been arrested on drug related charges as part of "Operation: Within the Limits".

According to the complaints, the “Cut”, an area off of Ward Street in Blountstown, is a high level drug trafficking area, where drugs, such as weed, cocaine, crack, MDMA, methamphetamines, and guns are being sold and used daily from dusk to dawn.

As part of the investigation, 13 individuals have been charged or arrested on drug related charges ranging from possession to sale of various drugs.

Deputies said that several other individuals also have outstanding warrants in connection to “Operation Within the Limits” and are still being sought after.

Below is a list of all they have arrested so far: 

o Tevin Nash

o Marderon Gatlin

o Marcus Williams
