Investigators shut down $1.6 million meth. network operating via mail

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro says investigators shut down an interstate methamphetamine network worth $1.6 million.

Police charged 58-year-old Larry Dean with mailing shipments of the drug from Arizona to the northern tier of Pennsylvania.  He has homes in both Mayport, Pennsylvania and Tucson, Arizona.

Police believe his main distributor is 66-year-old Dale Hanlin, who worked with as many as 28 other dealers in moving the drugs in Pennsylvania. 

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro tells us, "They shipped crystal meth directly through the U.S. mail from Arizona and California into northcentral PA".

Some of the 28 lower drug dealers are being charged with Possession and Possession with Intent to Deliver after a series of controlled buys and electronic surveillance.
