In Blair County drug traffickers are off the streets after a joint effort by state and local law enforcement. The District Attorney announced that 34 people are in custody and 11 warrants are still outstanding. Though arrests are part of an effort to break up a large- scale drug trafficking operation from York County and New York City. The District Attorney says one of the challenges in the fight against these is the illegal market for recovery drugs. "Methadone, and other drugs used to get people off of opioids are on the streets as well." He doesn't understand why people get involved with these things in the first place. "We are doing the best we can to get these drugs off the street. They come in because people have the appetite and it is difficult to eliminate the high appetite like if people want to quit smoking cigarettes."
