Quote:84 arrested in major drug, weapons bust in Philadelphia

NORTH PHILADELPHIA - November 22, 2013 (WPVI) -- A major drug and weapons bust in North Philadelphia has led to dozens of arrests across the city.

Friday morning, the narcotics unit revealed the extent of the sweep and showed us some of what they picked up. A lot of drugs, a lot of drug dealers and a lot of guns are now off the streets as a result.

Police armed with arrest warrants fanned out across the city on Monday to start rounding up the suspects.

It was the result of months of undercover surveillance and drug buys.

They hauled in 84 suspects - 7 of them teenagers. Along with the suspects, the police collected $100,000 worth of illegal drugs and 18 firearms. That includes a 40 caliber Highpoint assault rifle, which is the same kind used in the Columbine massacre.

The drugs reveal a growing trend. The police say they're starting to see more pills, prescription narcotics, along with the cocaine, marijuana and heroin.

This is the third sweep of this kind the police have made this year.

We ought to get a pool going on the conviction rate and the plea deals. Given the history of the Philly DA's office... Dodgy

It'll be nothing but plea deals and all of them will serve concurrent sentences since the prisons are already over-crowded. The teenagers will be tried in juvie court and let go with a slap on the wrist and their records expunged at 18.

Really? A High point is an "assault rifle"?

Wonder if they'll ever put out the actual list of perps and where they live.

I'm curious how many got picked up in Kensington.

I agree with you both. I hate this city.

Damn.. now where am I going to get my Xanz percs valium werks molly etc etc.

Oh, probably from the same damn place since it doesn't fucking matter how many of them you arrest, someone will just come in to fill the void. These cops are idiots, they don't even understand how the 'drug game' works at all. Especially in Kensington or Camden or anywhere on the east coast. That shit might work out in Arizona, but not here.

This makes me feel so much safer on Front St. Or Cayuga. Or Erie. I can just tiptoe through the tulips with the newfound safety.

The cops...the DA's office....the judges...they know EXACTLY how the drug game works. Your post tells me that YOU don't know how the drug game works.
