The group is part of 30 alleged drug dealers who were recently arrested in connection with the shipment and sale of $1.6 million in crystal methamphetamine in Jefferson, Clarion, Clearfield, Elk, and Forest counties over the last 18 months. The crystal meth was shipped to Jefferson County and the surrounding area through the U.S. mail from drug dealers in Arizona and California.

The crystal meth was shipped to Jefferson County and the surrounding area through the U.S. mail from drug dealers in Arizona and California. It was then sold throughout northcentral Pa. by a network of 30 drug dealers.

The 35 pounds of crystal meth that they sold – broken up into ¼ and ½ gram doses – produced between 32,000 and 64,000 doses of the drug that were sold in the five counties.

Investigators used a series of controlled purchases, court-approved electronic surveillance, package interceptions, and other tactics to identify the drug dealers involved.
