With help from the Pennsylvania State Police, the Warren County Drug Task Force had a different perspective on drug enforcement this week.

On Tuesday morning, task force officers, including Warren County Detective Brian Zeybel, took to the air in a state police helicopter.

“Members of the Warren County Drug Task Force, in cooperation with Pennsylvania State Police, flew numerous locations in the county looking for marijuana fields,” Zeybel said.

State Police Aviation Patrol Unit 6 out of Franklin, a Bell 407GX, supports federal, state, and local efforts throughout the northwest Pennsylvania region. “Marijuana eradication efforts” is one of the roles of the aviation units listed on the Pennsylvania State Police website.

Information gleaned from the flight will be put to use on the ground.

“Sites were documented and mapped for future searches and seizures,” he said.
