A months-long investigation in Sarasota County has led to the arrest of what may be one of the biggest meth dealers in the county.

At a Thursday news conference, Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight announced the six-month long ‘Operation Night Train’ ended in the arrests of 5 people, and took more than 8 and a half pounds of meth and nearly a pound of marijuana off the streets.

43-old Brian Tharp was allegedly the ringleader- two others were arrested earlier this month.
