Sheriff cracks down in Northaven

The Shelby County Sheriff's Department is in full force in the Northaven neighborhood tonight.

Representatives from all bureaus including narcotics, DUI, swat and gangs are working to sweep crime out of the neighborhoods.

Action News 5 spoke to Sheriff Mark Luttrell earlier who says this type of vigilance is necessary in order to make a real difference.

"This is an example of what it's going to take to really get criminal behavior out of here. One shot is not going to do it, what's going to do it is a persistent steadfast commitment to the good people of Northaven," said Luttrell.

The Sheriff says they've served several warrants and confiscated nearly $100,000 in cash so far.
