DRUG RAID IN LACKAWANNA ENDS WITH TWO ARRESTS

Lackawanna police teamed up with the State Police to confiscate 77 bags of crack cocaine and arrest two residents during a raid at 18 Pearl Ave. Monday afternoon.

"This was in response to numerous complaints from the neighbors about excessive traffic in and out of the residence at all hours of the day," Lackawanna Detective Capt. Thomas Brooks said.

Detectives Joseph Leo and Paul Sojda arrested Ellett Walker, 22, on two felony drug-possession charges and a misdemeanor charge of possessing drug paraphernalia in the 12:45 p.m. raid. She was jailed in lieu of $25,000 bail, police said.

Bernard McCutcheon, 47, of the same address, was charged with two misdemeanor drug counts.
