Baltimore County police today were seeking 43 suspects allegedly involved in street-level crack cocaine dealing in Essex communities.
Police spokesman E. Jay Miller said 40 of those being sought are named in grand jury indictments that followed a five-month undercover investigation in the Village of Tall Trees, Cove Village, Tidewater Village and East Roc.
As of this afternoon, 16 people had been arrested. Another eight
were found already in jail, Miller said.
The investigation began after residents and management officials of the apartment or townhouse communities complained about curb-side drug dealing in the targeted communities.
