Two people remain behind bars Thursday night in connection with drug trafficking.

Agents with the Major Crimes Task Force arrested 27-year-old Rennelle McKitrick and 30-year-old Travis Church.

Both McKitrick and Church were being investigated for selling cocaine.

Officers say these arrests bring them one step closer to dealing with the drug problem.

"This was a very lengthy investigation. It was an undercover operative. It's an over-a-year investigation, and this is our continuing war on drugs," Major Mark Warden with the Washington County Sheriff's Office said.

Both McKitrick and Church are being held at the Washington County Jail.

McKitrick's bond has been set at $15,000, and Church's bond at $5,000.

    Now the taxpayers will have to pay for these two's room,board,food and medical expenses while incarcerated.The so called war on drugs is not,has not and will not work.It is a waste of time and money convicting non violent drug offenders and i feel my taxpaying dollars would be better spent on something besides these offenders room,board,utilities,food and medical expenses,the fines levied these offenders never cover the cost of housing these people and on a number of occasions the courts never collect the fines,especially in wood county.Legalize and collect taxes from the revenue instead of costing taxpayers for these people's incarcerations.

    The crimes need to be stiffer, do as they do in some European countries, cut off their fingers or hands, then they may think about it. It may seriously curb the crime...then cut off the privates of those would be sex offenders and rapists....those idiots surely would think twice about their crimes. More trash off the streets!! yeah!!, I wish there was some way to anonymously text the law inforcement regarding these idiots....I think the law would catch alot more of them if the public could give anonymous tips easily through texting.

    anonymous, it is the liberals in the court system and the tree huggers in general that allow this to happen. they dont believe in punishment. they think sitting them down and telling them why they did wrong is enough. liberals are notorious for being soft on crime. they are the same ones who think it is ok to kill an unborn but not ok to put a murderer to death. go figure.

    Great that they got a small amount of the harder drugs off the streets, but did u know when u get caught with weed and trafficking it u get a heck of a lot bigger bond. but yet the harder more dangerous drugs they let u off with a basic slap on the wrist. and i am not bashing the crime task force they did a good job. i'm bashing our legal system. the legal system that has failed for to many years. ppl who shouldn't be let lose with out being sent to jail or prison is set free, and the ones who shouldn't be sent in is sent in for a long time. Good job task force.
