Chatham County, NC - Officers from the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office took to the road for another round of Operation Safe Street Thursday night. While in the past deputies have concentrated on things such as criminal enforcement measures and warrant service, a different approach was used Thursday to help criminal investigators and drug agents in their roles.

Approximately 28 officers from the Sheriff’s Office and Pittsboro Police Department set up various checkpoints across the county in search of information. The topics included attempting to gather information for crimes such as breaking and entering and drug sales that are occurring in different parts of the county. Deputies also circulated flyers in the Governors Club area concerning Scott Rabun, the man last seen at his residence on February 17th. Areas concentrated on included Bennett, Goldston, Pittsboro and North Chatham. Pittsboro Police Department requested assistance from deputies in investigations of possible drug sales and gang information in the southern part of the town.

As a result of the event, officers spoke to more than 450 people and received several tips and leads to work with. More operations of this kind are scheduled for the near future.
