Reaction to Drug Bust and a Warning

RICHLAND TOWNSHIP, CAMBRIA COUNTY - People that live in the community are reacting to a record breaking drug bust, and a warning.

In Friday's news conference the Cambria County District Attorney warned there could be more of a crime backlash after the big bust.

Drug Task Force agents took 250 thousand dollars worth of heroin off the streets. And the D.A. says that’s a good things, but it does create a problem. All those people who were dealing drug could turn to other crimes now that their employers are in prison.

Barry Ritko was watching his son practice Friday, and he's thinking about that warning. He says the community needs to look out for each other now more than ever. This father is also a local businessman. He’s part owner of the Best Window and Door Company. He sees people's concern at his business. He says people want more than doors and windows that keep the heat in, they also want something secure.

Because of the increased crime in the Johnstown area he got a concealed carry permit about a year ago. He's sad that the neighborhood isn't what it used to be, but he's proud to see police make a big bust like this, and send a message to dealers.
