Law enforcement arrests more than a dozen alleged drug distributors in Centre County

People who distribute illegal drugs often work together in well-coordinated networks. However, when Pennsylvania law enforcement discovers an important piece of information, it often leads to a more thorough investigation, and ultimately the members of the network are arrested for drug crimes such as possession with intent to distribute. When Pennsylvanians read about these cases, it is important for them to remember that everyone is innocent until proven guilty, even if the person has some connection to a drug ring.

Over the course of nearly two years, investigators uncovered enough information to arrest more than a dozen people in the Centre County area who were allegedly involved in distributing heroin, marijuana, and prescription drugs such as oxycodone and Percocet.

Law enforcement began to investigate when it found out that some drugs from this region had made its way to New York and may have traveled even farther. With this information, the authorities tapped phone lines and discovered code names for illegal drugs that it allegedly sold across state lines. Then they were able to locate several likely offenders. Even though Centre County is close to Penn State University, one law enforcement official is quite certain that students in State College haven’t been buying heroin.

Law enforcement is still looking for two people who also had connections to the network. Also, a few of the people who were arrested for various drug crimes were released on bail and may not face charges. Other people, on the other hand, are facing more serious charges and may serve prison sentences. Because the penalties for drug crimes are so severe, it is important for anyone who has been arrested for such crimes to contact an attorney as soon as possible.
