Details are still sketchy, very sketchy... Around 10 AM this morning, June 5, members of the County Sheriffs Department, the County Drug Task Force, Federal Marshalls and the Wellsville PD started serving warrants all over the village. We were told by Village officials they were armed with numerous warrants. Apparently it is another step taken in Mayor Susan Haugh's War on Drugs.
No too long ago the Mayor posted a "fair warning" on her Face Book page saying that officials were aware of who the drug dealers are and if they didn't leave town, they were coming after them. To emphasize her point, just last week, she and Police Chief Joe Scarabino, along with other WPD officers went door to door passing out letters. It was a second warning given to the suspected dealers. This morning they made good on their promise. Officers had to use their "universal key" in the picture above. Two people were inside who refused to answer the door.
Since one of their first stops this morning was in our neighborhood we were able to get a couple of pictures shown here. Now we have to try to get some additional information.
Personally we would like to give our thanks to all the officials involved this morning. With the number of agencies and officers involved this didn't just get started yesterday. There had to be a lot of planning. It is certainly encouraging to see forceful, positive action being taken.
