Police seize drugs, weapons in Long Avenue raid


Crack cocaine, marijuana, weapons and cash were recovered this morning in a drug bust on Long Avenue.
The New Castle police narcotics department and the District Attorney’s Drug Task Force entered the home of Bo Williams Jr. at 551 Long Ave. about 6:15 a.m.
“This was considered a high-risk entry because we knew the owner/occupant had firearms,” said District Attorney Joshua Lamancusa.
He said assorted weapons, including an altered assault rifle with a shortened barrel was found and crack and marijuana hidden throught the house.
