Methamphetamine hit the area like a wave in 2010, leaving behind addicts, burned buildings and endangered children. Police continue to turn up labs in Berwick, Danville, lower Luzerne County, and scattered areas across Columbia and Montour counties.
In addition to our continuing coverage of meth lab busts and related arrests, the Press Enterprise examined meth's local impact in a three-day report, including:
- The drug battle in Berwick, where many of the meth busts have come
- Photos of more than 100 meth suspects, plus recaps of the criminal cases against them
- An interactive map showing all of the area meth busts to date
- One suspect's story of addiction and arrest, and his hopes of staying clean
This series ran in the print edition over three days, May 12 to 14, 2013. You'll find the stories here. The photos and map will be updated regularly with new suspects, cases and lab sites.
