Over 30 arrested in Alabaster drug bust

ALABASTER, AL (WBRC) - A major drug bust in Alabaster has landed more than 30 people in jail.

The county's drug task force began making arrests Friday and continued through the weekend. It comes after a three-month investigation concentrating on two areas near exit 238 off I-65.

Investigators say most of the suspects arrested are street level drug dealers who were selling marijuana or crack cocaine.

The task force's commander says this problem is growing along with the area's population.
