No. 5 - Drug sweep in Laconia nets 20 arrests in 2 hours

It isn't a surprise that one of 2015's biggest stories was the heroin epidemic.

It actually played a factor in the three of these five stories.

But this story is about law enforcement's response to it.

This drug sweep not only netted a huge amount of arrests (20), but it seemed to kick off several other drug sweeps that targeted dealers, traffickers and hotspots across the state.
