Mexican Drug Cartel Cause Problems in PA

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane spoke to the legislative budget committee recently.  At the hearing she explained that the Mexican drug cartels are in Pennsylvania and they are taking over our neighborhoods. Federal, state, and local law enforcement authorities all agree that the Mexican cartels are the top wholesale suppliers of cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine to the Philadelphia region.

The U.S. Department of Justice’s 2011 Eastern Pennsylvania drug and gang threat assessment reported a large increase in drugs from Mexico since 2008. Many drugs have been intercepted on Route 1 and I-95, going both ways between New York and Philadelphia.  Police report that southern Chester County was part of the East Coast pipeline along I-95.

Kane said the sophistication of the drug-distribution networks and the violent crimes that can accompany them required an intensive enforcement approach which includes $3 million in funding to establish a mobile street crimes unit that could work with overburdened local police departments in the towns that traffickers are targeting.
