State Police Seize Over $107 Million in Prohibited Drugs in 2014

state_policeHARRISBURG, Pa. – Yesterday Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan announced troopers seized over $107 million in prohibited drugs in 2014, almost doubling the amount seized in 2013.

“Last year, state police seized over $107 million in prohibited drugs – which just about doubles the amount seized back in 2013,” said Noonan. “I am extremely proud of the work done by our troopers, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration and other state and local partners — and I believe we can seize even more illegal drugs in 2015.”

In the fourth quarter of 2014, troopers seized over 12 kilos of heroin and over 1,000 pounds of marijuana with a combined approximate street value of over $14 million. In addition, state police seized over 7,500 prescription pills and over three pounds of methamphetamines valued at over $497,000. Troopers seized over 38 kilos of cocaine with an estimated value of $3.8 million.

“The state police is committed to protecting our citizens by enforcing Pennsylvania drug laws and dismantling drug organizations responsible for the illicit drug trade occurring within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” Noonan said. “These seizures underscore our unwavering commitment to defeating these illegal criminal enterprises that have an extremely detrimental impact on the quality of life in our neighborhoods.”
