Broome District Attorney Reports Drug Overdoses Don’t Break for Pandemic
Broome County District Attorney Michael Korchak says the opioid crisis is not going away with the concentration shifting to the impacts of COVID-19.
Over the weekend, the D.A. says, three Broome County residents died of drug overdoses and drug dealers continue to sell.
Korchak says when drug dealers are arrested, they will be aggressively prosecuted and “removed from our community.”
