Tri-County Task force makes 21 arrests in Operation Impact
The Tri-County Task Force arrested 21 suspects for various charges of distribution of Schedule I or II controlled substances as a part of Operation Impact.
The first three arrests involved George B. Oliff of Montross, owner and operator of Angelo's Pizza.
Oliff was charged with five counts of distribution of an imitation controlled Schedule I or II substance.
Oliff is a respected businessman in the community of Montross and there is no doubt the charges against him will come as a shock to many residents.
Oliff is a member of Industrial Development Revitalization Committee and was very supportive of the O'Gara Group coming to Westmoreland County.
Along with Oliff, Josh R. Sanford, 31 of Montross was arrested Wednesday morning and is charged with one count of distribution of an imitation controlled Schedule I or II substance.
Lois G. Wright, 36 of Newland, Richmond County was arrested for 2 counts of distribution of an imitation controlled Schedule I or II substance.
