Eight suspected drug dealers behind bars in Bath

Posted: Updated:

BATH, N.Y. (WENY) - Early Thursday morning,  law enforcement in Steuben County made a major drug bust in Bath.

Around 4 in the morning, officials with the Steuben County Sheriff's Office, Bath, Corning and the New York State Police arrested and charged 8 accused drug dealers.

Brooks Baker, the District Attorney for Steuben County says, "each and every one of these people is actually a drug dealer. They are not users. These are not drug possessors. They possess drugs with the intent to sell them."

A total of 29 indictments were handed up as part of this process.

And a bust this size Baker says sends a message. "For those folks dealing drugs is Bath and have for the past 6 months or so, be on the look out. Now would be a good time to close up shop and get out of town. Because we are looking for you. We will find you. And you'll join your co-defendants here in the jail in Bath." 

All 8 of suspects are being held in Steuben County Jail without bail. They're due back in court on a later date.
