WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) Eleven people from our region have been arrested in connection with a drug trafficking operation spanning three counties.

David Freed, the United States Attorney for the Middle District of Pennsylvania was joined by local law enforcement officials during a press release Wednesday. They say the alleged drug trafficking operation operated in Luzerne, Lackawanna and Wyoming counties and the suspects sold heroin, crack cocaine and fentanyl from 2013 to 2020.

“The efforts undertaken here will help keep the drugs off the streets and hopefully be beneficial to people who are suffering from substance abuse disorder,” said Freed.

Eyewitness News first reported the drug arrests this morning in a live stream on PAHomepage.
