PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) -

The Parkersburg Narcotics Task Force and several officers were recognized for their excellence Tuesday evening.

U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart from Charleston appeared at Parkersburg City Council to recognize them as Task Force of the Year.

Stuart praised the efforts of the task force during the 2018 drug sweep, “Project Parkersburg” which netted a record amount of meth and other drugs before they could hit the streets.

Stuart also commended three officers for their work on a recent long-term intervention case: Lt. Pat Edelen, Sgt. Josh Snyder, and Agent Kyle Barnette.

Each officer received a challenge point coin, as well as a certificate.
