Last week, a Bucks County man was arrested for allegedly selling marijuana to an undercover police officer from Lansdale. Police began investigating the man two months ago when they were told that an employee at a local deli was involved in selling marijuana.
The U.S. House of Representatives recently approved a bill that would give states about $75 million each to enact legislation that would mirror a federal law that requires DNA collection from people arrested for certain crimes. The federal legislation requires federal agencies to collect DNA samples from those arrested, and for the samples to be included in the FBI's Convicted Offender DNA Index System. Currently, DNA samples collected by state law enforcement are not added to the federal database.
