“We have four Lancaster County drug dealers - who sold a variety of illegal substances - going to state prison for considerable time,” Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman said Tuesday. “We will not arrest our way out of the drug problem, but the predator dealers are businessmen and they need to know they will be held accountable and pay a price if they sell in Lancaster County.”
Assistant District Attorney Barry Goldman prosecuted the cases.
