McKEESPORT (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — Authorities are rounding up narcotics suspects in McKeesport.

The Allegheny County District Attorney's office says 70 warrants have been issued. McKeesport Mayor Michael Cherepko says 32 were in custody.

The DA's Narcotics Enforcement Team used the Palisades event center as a temporary processing area before transporting suspects to District Court in McKeesport for arraignment.

Mayor Cherepko says no one was injured in the raids. "How blessed we are not just here in McKeesport but throughout the Mon Valley with many of our law enforcement agencies. These men and women really put their lives on the line."

Multiple agencies assisted in the investigation involving drug trafficking of heroin and crack cocaine in the City of McKeesport.
