Serving Bucks County, Lehigh County, Montgomery County and Philadelphia
A couple of times a year, police departments in eastern Pennsylvania conduct drug sweeps. You might say that police and prosecutors are doing their jobs, but a cynic might remark that these drug sweeps have a political purpose, too.
In a drug sweep, police mount raids on homes and businesses where they suspect drug activity is taking place. Dozens of people can be arrested for felony drug possession or distribution in one of these sweeps, and invariably some of those arrested are charged with additional crimes such as weapons charges. Though the police may have reason to believe that those they arrest are dealing drugs, some of those arrested may be innocent bystanders or only tangentially connected to the drug trade.
