KITTANNING, Pa. (AP) - Authorities were rounding up 24 alleged drug dealers charged by the state attorney general’s office with selling heroin in two rural western Pennsylvania counties.

The attorney general’s office says some of the drugs being sold in Armstrong and Clarion counties is from Detroit and Cleveland. Interstate 80, which runs through Clarion County and just north of Armstrong has long been considered a pipeline of drugs into Pennsylvania from those Midwestern cities.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane, Armstrong County District Attorney Scott Andreassi (an-DRAY’-see) and Clarion County District Attorney Mark Aaron says 10,000 individual dose bags of heroin worth about $80,000 have been seized as part of the investigation.

Kane says, “Heroin trafficker view rural areas as a goldmine for customers.”
