There were no additional comments forthcoming from law enforcement officers involved in yesterday's drug raids in Wellsville. One officer from the Sheriff's Office told us "we were just serving warrants".
To the best of our knowledge there were two individuals apprehended on outstanding warrants and two rifles confiscated at a residence on 14th Street, pictured here. We got the impression by the time the officers reached the fourth stop word was already out. It travels fast in a small town. No one was found to be at home at either of two houses on 14th St. Additional stops were made at three different places on Commerce Street and one on Main St.
At last night's Wellsville Council meeting Mayor Susan Haugh promised that the Village's war on drugs was not finished. No additional comments were made in regards to what is next. The Mayor also issued a warning to Village landlords saying that if it can be proved, anyone who knowingly rents to known drug dealers will also be prosecuted.
Public reaction to yesterday's actions are overwhelmingly positive. Many comments made by individuals are encouraging Wellsville officials to keep the ball rolling. Although there were only two suspects taken in yesterday's raids the law enforcement efforts were greatly applauded.
