CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) – Police searched a Carlisle home on Tuesday and arrested a man they say is a known heroin dealer.
A special response team was called because officers believed Sadeek Anderson was armed. A flash bomb was used while conducting the search warrant.
“In this borough, there’s a response,” Jonathan Elias said as he watched the scene unfold from across the street. “There will be a response, and you’re not going to know when it’s there. It’s just going to be there.”
Elias watched as Anderson, his neighbor, learned that lesson.
“If anyone in that business thinks that they are doing things surreptitiously and that other people don’t notice, they’re dead wrong,” he said.
Anderson is the latest in a string of 12 drug dealers arrested in Carlisle since late spring. Carlisle police Lt. Stephen Latshaw said it’s the result of an ongoing investigation by Cumberland County’s Drug Task Force, Pennsylvania State Police, and local police.
“We’ll take strides to get these guys and gals off the streets that are selling this poison to these people, and see if we can get them locked up and in jail for a while,” Latshaw said.
Latshaw suspects the arrests won’t stop with Anderson.
“This is just ongoing,” he said. “Whether it’s going to be one guy, or two guys, or three more guys later, it all depends.”
