No drugs found in North Hill raid

NEW CASTLE — New Castle police came up empty after executing a search warrant in a drug investigation Monday.

Police and members of the Lawrence County Drug Task Force converged on Apt. 2 at 1208 Highland Ave. around 5 p.m.

However, according to New Castle Police Chief Bobby Salem, the suspect authorities sought was not there.

Police did make one unrelated arrest, Salem said, of a suspect with an outstanding warrant for a parole violation. But no drugs were found at the scene, the chief said.

“It happens sometimes,” he acknowledged.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
