They were selling bags of heroin with the name "Obama-09" stamped on them. Much of their sales were done in wide open public places. Investigators learned about the operation when they set up shop near the home of the police chief.
This is the heroin being sold on the streets of Luzerne County. You are reading right, "Obama 09" is stamped on the bags. Five people are under arrest. Christoper Allan and Derek Reich were the ring leaders, so say police. They and three women based their operation at this home at 9 Ross Street in Kingston. It is not far from the home of Police Chief Keith Keiper.
Undercover buys took place in broad daylight at public places like the parking lot behind Taco Bell on Wyoming Avenue. Investigators say these dealers were cocky and thought they were untouchable, selling some $10,000 worth of Obama bags of heroin each week. These alleged dealers shared the wealth. Their product was called “Obama 09”, but on their front porch they had a McCain sign.
This investigation is continuing. Eyewitness News is told more arrests are expected. Investigators say drug dealers have to market their product so they try to give it a catchy name. In this case they used "Obama-09".
