As of July 24, the Weakley County Sheriff's Department said all people wanted in connection with the "Little Red" drug roundup have either turned themselves in or been arrested.

According to the sheriff's department, the last to be caught was James Lannom from Dresden, Tenn.

Lannom was charged with resisting arrest.

In addition to Lannom, deputies say 25-year-old Crystal Renee Lecrone of Dresden was charged with accessory after the fact after they say she tried to help Lannom hide from them.

The undercover drug operation by the criminal investigation division of the Weakley County Sheriff's Department resulted in the indictment of 37 Weakley County residents and one Obion County resident.
