JACKSON, Tenn.- A drug round-up in Chester County leads to 10 arrests.

Authorities from Jackson, Lexington, and Henderson Police Departments, along with the Chester County Sheriff's Department, state department of corrections and U.S. Marshals participated in the roundup.

Officials said they made checks on sex offenders and probations throughout Henderson and Chester County.

Organizers of the roundup said this type of preventative action helps show residents they are taking crime seriously.

"The goal, from the get-go is to cut down on the violence in our communities and let these people know that, the communities, not just the police, but the communities are sick of it," said Chief Tommy Davis of the Henderson Police Dept.

Authorities made the arrests between 6 and 10 p.m. Friday.
