It was one of the biggest drug stings in the history of Southeastern Pennsylvania and involved suspects in Chester and Montgomery Counties as well as in Philadelphia.
The case started in 2008 with a Tredyffrin Township Police investigation centered on the now-renamed Heads Up Barbershop on Upper Gulph Road in the Wayne section of Tredyffrin Township. It grew to a local, county, state and federal investigation culminating in the arrests of nearly 30 suspects in May 2011.
One of the reputed high ranking underlings in he alleged drug ring has confessed, according to a report on Main Line Media News.
Oliver Ray Darden was sentenced Tuesday to three to ten years in state prison for his role in the drug distribution ring.
