    The York County Drug Task Force seized drugs, guns, money and vehicles in the arrests.

    The York County Drug Task Force sold about 50 vehicles Monday -- seized from drug arrests during the past year -- and, last week, added five more vehicles to its cache.

    In making 13 arrests last week, the task force confiscated five vehicles -- a Dodge Durango, a Toyota Avalon, a Ford F-150, a Jeep Wrangler and a Ford Escort.

    Although seized before Monday's sale, these vehicles were not up for auction; it typically takes about a year for the seizure process to be complete, said York City Police Detective First Class Andy Shaffer.

    Police said they also made two significant marijuana arrests last week. Using a search warrant in the 2000 block of Potts Hill Road, Newberry Township, police seized $13,440 in marijuana, $508 in cash and a Jeep Wrangler. They charged the home's resident, Joseph Crone, 38, with possession with intent to deliver marijuana.

    In the 700 block of Ridge Road, Lewisberry, police used a search warrant to seize 127 marijuana plants, 6 pounds of marijuana and a Ford Escort.

    They actually had a growing operation, with the lighting and the fertilizer, Shaffer said.

    Arrested were the home's residents, Trail Reeder, 36; Scott Beatty, 37; and Steven Beatty, 48; along with Ryan Schover, 38, of the 500 block of Lewisberry Road.

    Reeder and Scott Beatty were charged with delivery, possession with intent to deliver, and cultivating marijuana. Steven Beatty was charged with possession with intent to deliver and cultivation of marijuana.
