Drug Dealer Arrested In Bucks Co.; SEPTA Assault Suspect In Custody; 17 Staff Quit At Del. Prison

Falls Township Police have arrested a major drug dealer in Bucks County. Darren Thompson was placed into police custody on Tuesday and is accused of dealing large amounts of heroin in Falls and Bristol Townships. Falls Township detectives have been investigating Thompson for the past four months and say that undercover officers had bought over 70 bags of heroin from him in those months. Thompson reportedly sold over 1,400 bags of heroin a week.

Delaware County Police have now identified the suspect that is accused of forcibly kissing a SEPTA transit officer at the 69th Street Station in Upper Darby on Monday afternoon. 53-year-old Yesufu Ganiyu is now in police custody after he approached the officer and tried to kiss her multiple times. The officer was able to back away from the suspect and place him under arrest. The officer was not injured in the incident, but SEPTA Police Chief Thomas Nestel stated that she was shaken up by the encounter. Ganiyu has now been charged with Assault, Disorderly Conduct, Harassment, and Resisting Arrest. He is now behind bars in Delaware County. See picture.

Many staff members at New Castle County's James T. Vaughn Correctional Center have quit after the fatal hostage standoff that took place just two weeks ago. A total of 17 staff members have quit since the standoff. Many families of the inmates in the prison are concerned about the inmates as well because they say that phone calls and visits have been restricted. And some families are worried that some of the prisoners have been beaten and denied medical attention. Delaware's Governor John Carney stated that two retired judges: Henry duPont Ridgley and William L. Chapman will lead a review of the hostage situation that took place at the prison. A preliminary report will be given to Carney on June 1st, and a final report will be issued on August 15th.
