Drug Arrests Around the Area
7/3/2013 (Updated 6:50:31 PM)Lots of drug arrests over the past few days.
Broome County's Drug Unit scooped up 16 people suspected of drug activities as part of an attempt to deter future crimes and narcotics use.
The Broome County Special Investigations Unit Task Force says the 16 arrests involved 35 associated charges, seven search warrants, eight outstanding warrants, 97 wax envelope folds of heroin, and more than eleven thousand dollars of U.S. currency.
The task force says the arrests have led to additional information on a number of unsolved crimes.
They also say the sweep was prompted in part by a recent increase in property crimes, heroin possession and overdoses in the area.
