Shaw thanked all of the officers and agents who participated in this operation.

Shaw said this battle is far from over but reported that we are making progress thanks to leaders like Kathleen Kane and the DuBois City Council being committed to making a difference. 

Shaw explained that the District Attorney's Office and Clearfield County Drug Task Force are dedicated to removing illegal drugs from our communities, and holding those who possess and sell drugs accountable for their conduct. Shaw emphasized that these arrests should send a clear message that drug dealing will not be tolerated in Clearfield County.
