Police track down suspected drug dealers in McKees Rocks

MCKEES ROCKS, Pa. — Police in McKees Rocks conducted a major roundup Friday.

Channel 11 was there as police captured and cuffed many of the 51 suspected drug dealers during a sweep.

The roundup was a joint effort involving several local departments and the attorney general's office.

Investigators tell Channel 11 each man and woman arrested has sold drugs multiple times -- most as dealers in McKees Rocks or Stowe Township.

"We've been doing this investigation since February of this year. A lot of man hours and time has been put into it, so I think it's going to greatly help,” McKees Rocks police Chief Richard Deliman said.

Each of the suspects is facing several charges.  One suspect is accused in the death of a customer who died from an overdose.
