Two arrested in morning drug raid

NEW CASTLE — Two men were arrested in a morning drug raid on the city’s East Side.

District Attorney’s Drug Task Force and New Castle narcotics officers served a sealed search warrant on the Epworth Street house and confiscated about $4,000 worth of crack cocaine and cash and drug paraphernalia.

Because it is Election Day, District Attorney Joshua Lamancusa dubbed the detail “Operation Ballot Box.”

This was the task force’s 23rd organized drug raid this year.

More details on the arrest will appear in tomorrow’s print edition of the New Castle News.
