WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Crack cocaine is starting to make inroads in the borough, Police Chief Ray Schultz said Wednesday, and police are stepping up their efforts to root it out.
"It's moving in," Schultz said. "It's new to Waynesboro and we're concentrating on Main Street."
Schultz said police have been getting complaints from residents about street dealing, loitering and trash, especially on Main Street.
The Franklin County Drug Task Force is involved in the drug investigations, which have netted three drug arrests in Waynesboro in the last two weeks, police said.
In the most recent case, borough police on Aug. 29 arrested Maurice A. Alexander, 23, of 8776 Kings Road. He was charged with two counts of delivery and one of possession with intent to deliver, according to court records in District Justice Shirley Shatzer's office.
