The Huron Undercover Narcotics Team (HUNT) was busy in September, making 20 arrests in the four-county area of Alcona, Alpena, Montmorency and Presque Isle counties.

Most of the arrests were drug-related or people wanted on outstanding warrants.  Eight people were picked up for growing marijuana, including 6 arrests in Alcona and one each in Montmorency and Presque Isle counties.

The remainder of the drug-related arrests were for delivery charges of  various drugs, including heroin, morphine, ecstasy, vicodin and marijuana.

HUNT commander Rick Schultz said the team also made several felony narcotics arrests during the first week of October and more are expected in the coming weeks.
