More than a dozen suspected drug dealers were arrested recently in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, which according to law enforcement, was part of a three-month undercover operation.
Apparently several local residents complained at town meetings about illegal activity and the presence of drugs in the area. According to authorities, this lead to the undercover operations and the roundup.
According to Cannonsburg Police Detective Al Coghill, “The reason we target street-level dealers is because they are committing most of the crime in our neighborhood.”
Police believe the arrests will facilitate a decrease in burglaries and break-ins, according to Channel 11’s Cara Sapida.
Canonsburg Mayor David Rhome said, “If we can take these people out of our society, we learn the burglaries and car break-ins diminish to almost nothing.”
The 14 suspected drug dealers remain anonymous at this point in time however, the majority of the heroin and cocaine dealers who were arrested came to Canonsburg from out of town.
Rome stated, “I’m proud of this department and the aggressive approach they took that led to the arrest of 14 individuals.” Local authorities will continue with more arrests as appropriate and cleaning up the streets.
