Major Drug Round Up in Buffalo

By Mark Wozniak

Buffalo, NY – 64 suspects, mainly in South Buffalo, have been arrested over the past three days on drug charges.

Federal, state and city law enforcement investigators worked together on "Operation Triple Play".

Buffalo police commissioner McCarthy Gipson says the investigation has been underway for a while.

The suspects range in age from 15 to 78. Drugs, cash and cars were seized during the arrests. Most of the charges are felony drug violations, and carry long prison terms for those convicted.
