PA officials nab heroin peddlers; Tracking cell phones leads to arrests


Pike County District Attorney Raymond Tonkin and Wayne County District Attorney Janine Edwards credited the joint efforts of their detectives, the Pennsylvania State Police and the Honesdale Borough Police in apprehending the men.

Additionally, both said updates to the Pennsylvania’s Electronic Surveillance Act made the arrests possible. Tonkin stated “without the updated ability to monitor the dealers’ cell phones, it would not have been possible to apprehend individuals who traveled from over 60 miles away to deliver this poison into our communities.”
