KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Officials with the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office said two people were arrested during a drug bust Tuesday.

Deputies executed a search warrant on the 200 block of Ellison Road in LaFollette after a month-long undercover investigation.

During the search warrant, investigators reportedly recovered drug paraphernalia and other evidence that support the sale of controlled substances.
