WILLIAMSPORT, Md. - At least seven adults and four juveniles were arrested Thursday night in a drug raid that swept through a three-block area of Williamsport and the surrounding area.
The arrests included juveniles between the ages of 12 and 17 and young adults, police said.
Thirty officers, divided into teams, raided seven homes during the sweep. The officers were from the Washington County Narcotics Task Force, Hagerstown Police Department, Maryland State Police, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Washington County Sheriff's Department.
The raid began at 8 p.m. and continued into the early morning hours.
Cash and drugs, including marijuana seedlings, were confiscated during the arrests made as of 10 p.m.
Most of the drugs confiscated were cocaine and marijuana, said Bob Leatherman, a member of the narcotics task force.
The drug raid capped a month-long investigation by undercover agents who bought drugs and received information from confidential sources, said Sgt. Charles Summers, head of the narcotics task force.
