When the Elsberry Board of Aldermen convened on Feb. 11, Police Chief Robert Bodley asked for and received the council’s blessing with regard to the formation of a drug interdiction force.

“Lincoln County already has a drug task force made up of undercover narcotics officers,” said Bodley. “What we’re wanting to form now is basically a joint effort between the Elsberry Police Department and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department to slow down the trafficking of narcotics and illegally obtained currency from illicit drug sales.”
