April 24, 2003

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Acting on tips from informants and residents, police began an undercover investigation in November at a West Sixth Street bar that led to the arrests of five Waynesboro men over the past two weeks.

Officers from the Waynesboro and Washington Township police departments and the Franklin County Drug Task Force took part in the investigation and arrests.

Christopher Burton, aka "Little Chris," of 8790 Kings Road in Waynesboro, was charged with two counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. Police did not list an age for Burton.

Police said Burton turned himself in at the Waynesboro Police Department after learning warrants had been issued for his arrest.

James Smith, aka "Now-G," 35, of 338 W. Main St. in Waynesboro, was charged with one count each of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, criminal use of a communications facility, possession of a small amount of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
