Huge Drug Sweep in Middletown

Some rather lurid news in our fair city from the Middletown Eye blog:

The Middletown Police Department’s Narcotics Unit along with the Special Investigations Unit initiated a warrant sweep to combat the quality of life issues in Middletown, specifically in the North End of the city where the sale of narcotics has severely diminished the quality of life for the Middletown citizens in that area.

In total the officers were looking to serve a total of 27 narcotic arrest warrants for 19 suspects.  Eight of the warrants were for five people that were already incarcerated.  A Habeas will be issued so that the warrants can be served in court.
