Three dozen arrested in massive, months-long drug bust in Steuben (video)

Thirty-six people have been arrested after a narcotics investigation named “Operation Fall Clean-Up” in Steuben County.

Steuben County District Attorney Brooks Baker made the announcement Thursday morning, saying the investigation began in April in Bath.

The investigation, which Baker says was not part of one drug enterprise, stretched across the county and in some cases out of New York State, reaching as far as California.

The four-month investigation involved the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office, Bath Police, Corning Police, New York State Police, and Canisteo Police.

The investigation led to arrests in Wayland, Corning, Avoca, Bath, and Canisteo and 50 indictments related to the possession and sale of fentanyl, heroin, cocaine, and meth.
