Members from the AG's office along with the Westmoreland County Drug Task Force and numerous police departments in Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties have warrants for the arrests of 40 street-level drug dealers.
Investigators said these suspected drug dealers are running their operations throughout the Allegheny-Kiski Valley.
"Street and mid-level dealers are the nuts-and-bolts of any drug network," Attorney General Tom Corbett said. "Their activity has a direct impact on public safety and quality of life in our communities, supporting and feeding drug addiction and other drug-related crime."
Corbett explained that the Attorney General's Bureau of Narcotics Investigation works hand-in-hand with regional drug task forces and local police across the state, using evidence and intelligence gathered from street-level drug investigations to develop cases against large scale drug traffickers and distributors.
