The Port of Baltimore is known as the Heroin Capital of America. Dave Sunday, York County Chief Deputy Prosecutor of Major Crimes and Felony Drug Cases has been on the front lines of the fight as it impacts our community. Dave Sunday asserts, “York County is Ground Zero North in the battle.”
“York County has become a bullseye for drugs, especially for those who traffic heroin,” says Dave Sunday. “As dealers bring heroin north via I-83 into our community, York County, principally south of US Route 30, has been among the most affected by drugs entering through the Port of Baltimore. At the same time, our vicinity to Philadelphia via the PA Turnpike (I-76 West) and New York City via US Route 222 South from Reading to US Route 30 West, compounds the problem. These Philly & NYC dealers notably target the residents of York City and of Northern York County.”
“The York County DA’s Office has successfully collaborated with Local, State and Federal partners to aggressively prosecute drug dealers to the fullest extent of the law. I will utilize my extensive experience as Chief of the Felony Narcotics Unit to direct prosecutions aimed at rooting out the sources of the heroin supply through longer-term investigations,” states Dave Sunday.
