PORT JERVIS – Eighteen people have been charged with crimes pertaining to the trafficking of drugs throughout the City of Port Jervis, surrounding areas and into the Orange County Jail.

District Attorney David Hoovler and Police Chief William Worden announced Monday that the defendants dealt with crack cocaine, cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and prescription drugs.

  • “This was an operation that was done at the behest of Port Jervis to get a little more control over what’s going on there and at the community’s request as Mayor Kelly Decker said that drug dealers are not welcome in Port Jervis,” said Hoovler. And, I think we accomplished that at this point.”

From December 2021 through March of this year, undercover investigators purchased quantities of narcotics from individuals in and around Port Jervis.

Information and evidence led to the executive of several search warrants that resulted in the recovery of additional narcotics and other tools of the drug trade. It was also learned that some of those drugs were being smuggled into the county jail.

“The illicit possession and sale of narcotics is associated with a large percentage of crime that occurs in  our community,” said Chief Worden.

“No family goes untouched in this terrible addiction and stopping profiteers in this demise is the fight that we need to continue to have, even if it keeps only one person from addiction or even dying,” said Mayor Decker.
