Selective Enforcement Unit (SEU) drug investigation Binn's Park September 2020

The Lancaster Bureau of Police, Selective Enforcement Unit (SEU), is  dedicated to addressing quality of life issues in Lancaster City. An issue recently tasked to them was complaints regarding drug use and drug sales at Binn's Park 140 N. Queen St. 

Binn's Park has been an area enjoyed by visitors, residents, downtown employees and others. Binn's Park has also been an area where the homeless are known to congregate. Groups of criminal drug dealers had taken advantage of many of the vulnerable population that had been drawn to the park.

The park had become filled with litter, debris, discarded food items and had general unsanitary conditions in many areas. Those unsanitary conditions posed a hazard to those that were in the park and the rampant drug use forced out others that wanted to use the park for legitimate purposes. 

SEU launched an investigation that spanned several days in the first two weeks of September 2020. During their investigation members of SEU identified several individuals that were selling drugs such as synthetic cannabinoids (K2) and crack cocaine. in the park. The following individuals were charged by SEU with various Felony/ Misdemeanor charges. All suspects have been taken into custody and have been arraigned on their respective criminal complaints.
