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.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
