Cops Bust Nineteen in Clarion County Drug Sting

mugs3CLARION, Pa. (EYT) – On Friday, April 4, 2014, Clarion County law enforcement agencies participated in a large scale operation to serve arrest warrants upon 19 suspects accused of distributing controlled substances in Clarion County.

This was a joint operation involving the Pennsylvania State Police, Troop C Vice Unit, and CNET. Also participating were Clarion County Detectives, Sheriff’s Department, and Police Departments from Clarion Borough, Knox Borough, and the Southern Clarion County Regional Police Department.

Fourteen of the suspects are accused of distributing opiates, either heroin or prescription opiates, such as Oxycodone or Suboxone.

District Attorney Mark Aaron says, “Based on the trends we see in Clarion County, the connection between the abuse of prescription opiates leading to heroin use is clear. Today’s arrests are a step in the right direction toward stemming the tide of opiate abuse. Hopefully by raising awareness, more people will realize that many prescription pain killers, such as Oxycodone or Percocet, are opiates that lead to the same type of addiction as heroin.”

Aaron continues, “the PSP Vice Unit and CNET are to be commended for their work in a difficult, and often dangerous, environment to protect Clarion County families by taking this poison off the streets.”

As a result of today’s activities, 13 of the 19 suspects are in custody either in Clarion or other counties. It is expected that additional charges will be filed against Marcus Smerker based on the large amount of marijuana and firearms found in his possession when he was taken into custody.
