Butler County Detective Tim Fennell, coordinator of the drug task force, said they are considered “mid-level” street dealers.

All of those charged, including one juvenile, are charged with drug possession and drug delivery. Task force officers made undercover buys of heroin, cocaine, Oxycontin or LSD, according to authorities.

The arrests involved officers from Cranberry, Adams, Jackson, Zelienople, the Butler County Sheriff's Office, Butler County detectives, Butler County probation, and agents from the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General.
