• 122 suspected Pittsburgh-area drug dealers arrested over 8-month period

    Updated:

    PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh police said they arrested 122 suspected drug dealers over an eighth-month period and the arrests aren’t over.

    During a news conference Friday afternoon, investigators said most of the arrests were made in the Sheraden, Elliot, Carrick, Knoxville and Hazelwood neighborhoods.

    “People called in arrests that were made.  These people have interest in their communities and neighborhoods.  They don’t want drug trafficking in their neighborhoods,” said Assistant Chief George Trosky of Pittsburgh police.

    Trosky said there is no connection between the suspected drug dealers, though their investigation is ongoing and more arrests are expected. 

    “As long as we make it difficult for them to have free reign to sell drugs, we can suppress it the best we can,” said Lt. Robert Roth of Pittsburgh police.
