An investigation by the Bucks County Detectives Drug Strike Force and the Middletown Township Police Department resulted in the arrest of a Philadelphia man who had been supplying fentanyl throughout Bucks County since May 2021.
Brian Franklin, 24, of Stanwood Street, was charged Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2023, with two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and one count each of criminal conspiracy to commit possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, dealing in proceeds of unlawful activities and criminal use of a communication facility.
He was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Jan Vislosky and was sent to Bucks County Correctional Facility under $9 million bail.
“I commend all our law enforcement officers who continue to fight to protect our community,” First Assistant District Attorney Jen Schorn said. “This collaborative multi-agency law enforcement effort, led by the Bucks County Detectives Drug Strike Force, undoubtedly saved countless lives by getting this fentanyl trafficker off our streets.”
